Wild Wisconsin - Off the Record

Hunting is a time-honored tradition in Wisconsin. If you’re curious about the sport, looking for a better understanding of the culture or interested in knowing where your food comes from – the DNR’s Hunt For Food program has you covered.

Hunt For Food combines classroom and field instruction for beginners before pairing participants with an experienced hunter to go out in the wild. We sat down with a husband and wife duo of Wisconsin transplants who fell in love with hunting through the DNR’s free Hunt For Food program. From making new friends, learning new skills, bringing home the meat to enjoying the outdoors, Martin Perales, a PhD Candidate at UW-Madison’s Center for Limnology (Fisheries), and Flora Csontos, a staffer for a state representative, say Hunt For Food is well-worth the small commitment.

Interested in joining the course? We’re hosting different courses for various species across the state throughout the year. Visit Hunt For Food (https://dnr.wi.gov/education/outdoorskills/HuntForFood.html) to sign up today.
