CADILLAC, Mich. (AP) — The Michigan Department of Natural Resources is offering bear hunting clinics this weekend in Cadillac.

They’ll be held Saturday and Sunday at the Carl T. Johnson Hunt and Fish Center in Mitchell State Park from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. Another clinic is scheduled for Aug. 15 at the same place.

Experienced hunters and DNR educators will offer pointers on habitat, gear, stand placement, baiting, rules and regulations, carcass care and hide care.

Participants will spend three to four hours in the classroom and then go outdoors to learn how to place a stand and bait in the woods.

The fee is $25, which covers door prizes, a DNR bear patch and lunch. Registration is required.
