Turkey hunting class for youths

Friday, April 1, 2005

The Missouri Department of Conservation's Hunting Skills University program will give local children an opportunity to learn about turkeys on Saturday.

The clinic at AppleCreek Range begins at 5:30 a.m. with participants getting a chance to listen to live turkey gobbling. That will be followed by interactive hunting scenarios and setups. After lunch, students can pattern their shotguns and learn to call turkeys.

The program only has room for 20 applicants, but the MDC hopes to accomodate students in upcoming clinics.

Adult supervision is required for those who participate.
