Claytor Lake State Park and the Virginia Department of Game and Inland Fisheries are hosting a Youth Deer Hunting Workshop on Friday, December 18 and Saturday, December 19.
Workshops will include a Friday evening seminar to discuss whitetail deer biology and game management, hunting safety and ethics, muzzleloader safety and shot placement, and more. Saturday will be a guided hunt including lunch and game care.
Participants must be 12 to 17 years old and have never harvested a deer with a muzzleloader before. Participants may be accompanied by a non-hunting parent or guardian and must have completed the hunter’s safety course and meet all the licensing requirements.
This program will help achieve the goal to safely introduce youth to deer hunting. Registration is limited.
For more information or to register, contact Jimmy Mootz at 804-367-0656 or [email protected].
THE PARK WILL BE CLOSED DURING THE HUNTING WORKSHOPS.
