Winter is a time when the predatory instincts of coyotes can become particularly troublesome for livestock operators and other rural landowners.
People needing hunting solutions to these problems should plan to attend the Missouri Department of Conservation’s (MDC) clinic “Learning to Hunt: Predator Hunting for Beginners” Feb. 8 at MDC’s Andy Dalton Shooting Range and Outdoor Education Center. This facility is located at 4897 N. Greene County Farm Road 61 near Ash Grove. This free clinic will be 8:30-11:30 a.m.
Participants can learn the calls, techniques, firearms and strategies used in predator hunting. Registration is required for this program. People can register for this event at https://mdc-event-web.s3licensing.com/Event/EventDetails/171113.
People can learn about other events at the Dalton Range by calling 417-742-4361 or by going to www.mdc.mo.gov/SouthwestEvents.
