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.

Friends of the Poynette Game Farm (FPGF) financially supports mentored youth and novice hunting programs offered at events held at various facilities around the state. Learn to Hunt events are open to any individual 10 years or older with no pheasant hunting experience. Parents or legal guardians of minors are also encouraged to participate.

The two-day programs combine classroom instruction and field work before a novice goes hunting with an experienced hunter.
