MARSHALL, Ill. (WTHI) - One of the most popular outdoor activities drew men, women, and children to Marshall, Illinois on Thursday night.
It was so they could learn how to hunt.
In total, 50 people attended the hunter education course and learned about what it takes to hunt legally and safely.
The guest speaker was Daniel Greuel.
He said even though he enjoys teaching others how to hunt, seeing his two sons follow his hunting footsteps brings him the most excitement.
"Right now, I have a 14-year-old and a nine-year-old that have started hunting within the past four years, and the most exciting thing for me is to be on the field and watch them enjoy the hunt," Greuel said.
Another hunter safety course takes place on Saturday from 8:00 a.m. until 4:00 p.m. at the University of Illinois Extension office.
The minimum age requirement is eight.
