Introduction to Modern Hunting

Friday, August 6th, 6pm-8pm
Saturday August 7th; 9am-5pm
Sunday August 8th; 9am-5pm 

Please arrive at least 15 minutes early for a health check and be prepared to start on time.

Where: Linne Doran is located about fifteen minutes outside of Duvall in the foothills of the Cascade Mountains. You can find a map and driving directions here.

What to Expect:
We spend time outside as well as in covered structures. When you leave your car, please bring all the food and gear you need to be out the entire day. Be prepared to dress in layers so that you can adjust easily (see attached gear list). We hike about 1-2 miles during the class day, at times off trail. Expect that you may get muddy and wet.

We will spend significant time outside regardless of the weather. We encourage you to be prepared for all types of weather and bring several layers so that you can be comfortable throughout the class.

Facilities: Personal facilities for your use include several port-a-potties, along with drinkable water. 

We are offering rustic camping for this weekend on Friday and Saturday nights. Please be aware that any change to the Covid Phase King County is in will affect our ability to offer this. If we go back to Phase 2, you will need to make other arrangements. We do not have any cooking or bathing facilities, so please plan accordingly.

Food: No meals are provided with this program. Please bring a sack lunch and snacks. We do not have any way for you to refrigerate or heat your food, so please plan accordingly.
