“This is one of our more popular seminars because it covers a lot of ground and information that is very useful for both novices or experienced hunters,” said Dick Severin, assistant hunter outreach coordinator for CPW. “Success depends on how much preparation you do now, before the hunting seasons begin, so we encourage everyone to take advantage of the opportunity.”
