MADISON (WKOW) -- If you are a hunter, the state Department of Natural Resources is looking for you to take part in the agency's annual bear hunting course.
The program features classroom and field instruction, as well as a real hunt with mentors.
Hunters must be at least 10 years old and can't have participated in the course or purchased a bear hunting license ever. Applications must be postmarked by May 25.
Since 2005, the DNR has offered the course in hopes of recruiting new hunters. The agency offers similar courses for deer, turkey and duck hunting.
