The California Department of Fish and Game (DFG), in partnership with Pacific Coast Hunter Education Association, will offer a Wild Pig Hunting Clinic at Fort Hunter Liggett in Monterey County on April 30.

The clinic is scheduled to run from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. and includes a barbecue lunch. Space is limited.

Topics covered include pig biology, hunting considerations and requirements. Additionally, instructors will teach different methods of take and different strategies to locate wild pigs. Finally, trainers will explain hunting techniques, locations to hunt, and the proper way to care for game. As a bonus, wild pig recipes will be shared.

Cost for the clinic is $30. However, the Pacific Coast Hunter Education Association will refund $20 of the registration cost to all association members and other certified hunter education instructors as a way of saying thanks for helping educate the next generation of California hunters.

Raffle tickets will be available for $5 each, or five for $20. All proceeds from the clinic will go to Pacific Coast Hunter Education Association, and DFG’s Advanced Hunter Education program.
