Turkey Hunting 101 at Parks and Wildlife
With an estimated 7 million-plus wild turkeys in 49 states, turkey hunting continues to be the fastest growing hunting activity.
Prospective and experienced gobbler hunters can take advantage of expert guidance from Colorado Parks and Wildlife in a free, one-evening seminar titled “Turkey Hunting 101,” set for 6 p.m. on April 9 at the Parks and Wildlife Hunter Education Building, 711 Independent Ave.
The clinic is co-sponsored by Parks and Wildlife and the Western Slope Chapter of the National Wild Turkey Federation.
The turkey federation is a nonprofit organization dedicated to the conservation of wild turkeys and the preservation of the country’s hunting heritage.
There is no fee for the class and pre-registration is required. Reserve your spot at http://www.register-ed.com/events/view/60680.
According to Colorado wildlife managers, turkey populations are increasing across the state and license sales continue to rise from year to year, providing everyone with the opportunity to experience the sport.
The evening’s topics will include turkey calling basics, field tactics, information about local turkey populations, tips for hunting on public land and firearm safety.
In addition, participants will have the opportunity to ask questions and participate in discussions with veteran turkey hunters.
