A wingshooting clinic at the Maribel Sportsman's Club on Saturday, Aug. 11, from 8 a.m. to 4 p.m. will help participants become proficient in the "art or practice of shooting at birds in flight." Originally set for April, it was rescheduled because of a spring blizzard.

The workshop, designed and sponsored by the Department of Natural Resources, is taught by volunteer instructors from the Green Bay Duck Hunters Association. The clinic, to be held at the Maribel Sportsman's clubhouse at State 147 and I-43, is designed to help bird hunters improve their hunting skills by learning to:

The cost of the workshop is $25 and pre-registration is required. Participants must have a basic understanding of shotgun shooting, loading and unloading.

Clay targets, along with 12 and 20 gauge steel shot, will be provided at no additional charge for all wingshooting exercises.

To register visit the DNR's Go Wild website and browse upcoming classes. Select Advanced Shotgun (Wingshooting) and Manitowoc County. You may also contact Tom Bahti at 920-737-5294 or More information at: /education/outdoorSkills/wingshooting.html
