This virtual event will be hosted by Sen. Fowler to provide an update on new laws, important dates and updated tag information. Information will also be provided on IDNR’s “Learn to Hunt” program, which provides education and training workshops to teach adult participants how to hunt.
“This event has served as a helpful educational opportunity to bring updated information to the sportsmen in our region in the past, and I’m looking forward to partnering together with Director Callahan to host this event again this year,” said Sen. Fowler. “As we continue to confront the daily realities of COVID-19, we can host this virtual event safely and ensure that we provide the helpful information needed to keep hunting season safe and fun for our local hunters, anglers and trappers.”
Additionally, Director Callahan and Sen. Fowler will also be providing an update on state park improvements happening across the region.
“Hunters, trappers and anglers play an important role in our conservation efforts across the state,” Callahan said. “Any chance to speak with them, answer their questions and ask some questions of my own is always a welcome opportunity.”
