Friends of Poynette Game Farm


Hunting Programs


It is widely known that hunting participation significantly increases with the involvement of a mentor, someone knowledgeable about the outdoors and willing to teach and guide a youth or novice hunter in the field.

FPGF financially supports mentored youth and novice hunting programs offered at events held at various facilities around the state. The one next to the Poynette Pheasant State Game Farm is at the 250 acre MacKenzie Center.  This facility has overnight lodging, trap range, commercial kitchen, and classroom. Consult the Calendar of Events to find the Friend's LTH Events and Dates


Additional information on the Learn to Hunt (LTH) program is available on the WDNR web site.  If you are interested in participating in a Learn to Hunt program as a student please complete the FPGF LTH Reservation Application.
