WDNR Wisconsin Wingshooting: advanced shotgun training:
For the last several years, WWA volunteers have been performed sessions of the Wisconsin Wingshooting program. These instructors have completed an extensive two day hands-on training program themselves, to become qualified to train others in the skills necessary to become a more effective shooter, using non-toxic shotshell loads. As of the fall of 2015, WWA had five volunteer instructors, who have completed the instructor’s training course.
- To provide you the information and skills needed to decrease your wounding loss of waterfowl and upland game
- To encourage better hunting ethics therefore fostering a better appreciation of our wildlife resource
Wingshooting for Migratory Birds outcomes:
- Better shooting means more consistent harvesting of birds
- Better distance estimation means fewer marginal shots taken
- Appropriate firearms, choke, and ammunition choices
The result: fewer wounded birds!
Ensuring that hunting continues to be “socially acceptable”:
- Surveys indicate that the non-hunting public will accept a wounding rate of 10% or less, before voting against hunting
- Helping train waterfowl hunters to be more effective, more ethical, helps ensure the future of our pursuits!
