MIDDLE INLET — The Lake Noquebay Sportsman’s Club, N9200 Maple Beach Road, is hosting a Wisconsin Wingshooting clinic July 20 from 8:30 a.m. to 4:30 pm. This clinic will help bird hunters become proficient in the art or practice of shooting birds in flight.

The workshop, designed and sponsored by the Department of Natural Resources, is taught by volunteer instructors from the LNSC and the Green Bay Duck Hunters Association. The clinic is designed to help bird hunters:

■ Improve their wingshooting technique using the proven “swing through” method

■ Estimate range to target “on the fly” 

■ Choose the best gun, choke and cost-efficient ammo combinations.

By learning these skills, participants will:

■ Improve their hunting experience

■ Reduce the number of wounded or lost game birds

■ Enhance positive hunting ethics

■ Foster a better appreciation of wildlife resources.

The cost of the workshop is $25 and preregistration is required. Participants must have a basic understanding of shotgun shooting, loading and unloading. Game bird hunting and shotgun wingshooting experience is not required, but would be beneficial. The course fee covers all clay targets, along with 12- and 20-gauge steel shot for all wingshooting exercises. Participants may come with their favorite shotgun for waterfowl or upland hunt bird hunting and a variety of choke tubes approved for steel shot.

To register, people may visit the DNR’s Go Wild website, https://gowild.wi.gov/lookupaccount and browse upcoming wingshooting classes. Select Advanced Shotgun (Wingshooting) and Marinette County.
