First-time turkey hunters


If you have ever wanted to hunt turkeys but want to learn from someone who knows what they’re doing then the Department of Natural Resources and the National Wild Turkey Federation have a program that will help you to a successful hunt.

Whether you’re an adult or youth, you can learn to hunt turkeys this April with experienced volunteers. Learn safe hunting techniques, how to call-in turkeys, hunting tactics and how to field dress a bird.

The hunts are Saturday, April 18, and Sunday, April 19, and provide opportunities to access locations that may otherwise be closed to hunting. Learn the skills and techniques that will allow you to become a lifelong turkey hunter. Make sure to apply through Sunday, March 1.

The DNR and the National Wild Turkey Federation cooperate to organize these hunts. Details about how to apply and costs to participate are available on the DNR’s website at
