Teaching adults to hunt

The Minnesota Department of Natural Resources takes its share of flak from constituents, but the agency is on the right track with a program aimed at teaching adults how to hunt.

It's a great idea.

There's been considerable focus over the years on teaching kids how to hunt and be safe in the field—and justifiably so—but lost in the shuffle were adults who wanted to take up hunting but didn't know where to begin.

Without a parent or other adult mentor, learning to hunt is tough. There's a lot more to deer hunting, after all, than picking up a rifle and heading for the woods.
