Update: March 12, 2020

Due to an administrative directive by the University of Illinois, the Illinois Learn to Hunt program will be postponing upcoming workshops to protect the safety and well-being of participants, mentors, volunteers, and our communities for the next 2 weeks in response to the COVID-19 virus. At which point, we will reevaluate and assess future workshops using guidance from the University of Illinois, Illinois DNR, and the Illinois Governor’s office. Participants currently registered for these workshops will be updated via email for make-up dates and further details as we move forward. In the interim, program staff is working to convert workshop materials to online-based learning opportunities to continue providing educational opportunities to those wanting to learn to hunt. When the details of these learning opportunities are finalized, we will release the details immediately. We will continue to provide updates as they become apparent. Thank you for your patience and understanding during this difficult time.

The Illinois Learn to Hunt provides FREE education and training workshops to teach ADULT participants how to hunt deer, turkey, squirrels, pheasants, ducks, geese and other game.

”An excellent program to bring people from outside the hunting culture to inside the hunting culture.”

”Thanks, Illinois Learn to Hunt. I successfully harvested, field dressed, butchered, and cooked my first game this week thanks to your instruction at the Learn to Hunt workshop.”
