Learn to Hunt Turkey program slated for April
Since the Learn to Hunt program rolled out several years ago, many aspiring hunters have enrolled in classes for the species of their choice. There have been Learn to Trap classes as well as Learn to Hunt classes for bear, turkey and deer. These classes are aimed at introducing new hunters, both adults and children over 10. The classes are designed to help new hunters get the basics down and to possibly even harvest their first animal.
