The Catskill Interpretive Center (CIC) announces that a new monthly lecture series named “Second Saturdays” will present it’s first event on Saturday, November 14 at 1:00 PM. This series was inspired by the success of a September presentation about John Burroughs given by Dr. Bill Birns.
Hunting in the Catskills will be the topic of the presentation and discussion offered by local sportsman and licensed guide Charles “Sonny” Somelofski, owner of Catskill Outdoor Adventures. He will lead the conversation about Catskills hunting traditions, heritage, and the information needed to know how to enjoy hunting in the Catskills today.
Learn about the species hunted, prerequisites for hunting including hunter training and safety courses, licenses and permitting, and access to hunting lands including DEC and DEP lands and maps.
Know how to plan your hunting trip, including clothing and gear, game restrictions, and knowing your limits. Meet others who have long experience in tracking, creating blinds and building tree stands. Ensure that you know how to handle and preserve your harvest.
“For many people, hunting is not just a sport. Hunting can be a way of life, putting a person in touch with nature” notes Mr. Somelofski. Catskill Outdoor Adventures offers fishing, hunting and photography excursions to remote and semi-remote sections of the Catskills. “Our remote trips are specially tailored for every person – from the office worker to the hearty outdoorsman. Catskill Outdoor Adventures enables any person to get back to nature.”
The Catskill Mountain Club is an operating partner of the CIC.
