The Youth Turkey Hunt Program introduces youth to the world of hunting. After completing program requirements, young adults (aged 12-17) can hunt on a special day with a licensed adult hunter. This year, the mentored hunt will be on April 24, 2021.
The youth turkey hunt seminar provides hunters with specialized turkey hunting training and reinforces concepts from Basic Hunter Education. Young hunters will have the opportunity to practice all aspects of a safe hunt.
Keeping with current COVID-19 guidelines, the youth turkey seminar format has changed for 2021. The traditional seminar has been broken into 2 parts with online options and smaller in-person class sizes. All new participants are required to complete both parts of the seminar. Go to the Youth Turkey Hunt Program page for all the details.
