At HuntFest this year, there will be a number of skills workshops held, which will cover a variety of topics of interest to hunters, both novice and experienced.
As hunters we should never be afraid to embrace new techniques, technology or hone our skills. The topics selected aim to do just that.
These workshops will be approximately 30 minutes in duration. The workshop schedule will be identical on each day of HuntFest. The Proposed Skills Workshops for HuntFest 2018:
Skinning an animal in the field (Workshop 1 starts at 11am)
Demonstration of how to skin a large animal in the field, such as deer or goat. Jeff Garrard will show you how it’s done and is more than happy to answer questions throughout the demonstration.
