MADISON - Hunters of all ages who head out for their first hunt are encouraged to mark the occasion with a first harvest and first hunting experience certificate.
"The first time you harvest an animal can be very exciting, however the first time sitting in a tree stand or setting a trap can be just as memorable," said DNR wildlife data coordinator Erin Larson. "The department offers first hunting experience certificates to commemorate the occasion."
Those interested can submit a photograph of their special moment to be included, as well as details about the experience. To help preserve hunting memories with friends and family, these free certificates can act as a personalized memento.
Hunters are asked to fill out information regarding when and where the animal was harvested to complete the form - this information will be displayed on a customized certificate. Certificates will be sent electronically to each successful hunter within a few weeks.
To create a certificate, visit dnr.wi.gov and search keywords "first certificates."
