Learn to Hunt Turkey Events Being Planned for Sponsors
Wisconsin Ag Connection - 01/18/2016
Want to help those looking to improve health in the new year and promote conservation at the same time? Then you may want to plan your spring Learn to Hunt Turkey event now.
Department of Natural Resources Hunting Coordinator Keith Warnke says learn to hunt events show novice hunters how harvesting their own food from Wisconsin's country sides is what makes the state's hunting traditions a favorite among seasoned hunters.
"Many adults who did not come from hunting families and are interested in hunting often have no idea how to start," Warnke said. "These Learn to Hunt events are a great way for them to learn in a controlled and safe environment with an experienced hunter. If
you are interested in a new and rewarding experience, give me a call."
Warnke says winter's tightening grip is the perfect time to plan your Learn to Hunt turkey event.
Learn to Hunt events may be scheduled before, during or after the six spring turkey time periods. However, most are held in late March and early April. Interested individuals and clubs will want to get started now to complete the necessary steps.
The department has made it easy for sponsors to organize Learn to Hunt events with on-line applications, reimbursement opportunities, assistance in finding event insurance and event advertising on the DNR's website.
More information on the Learn to Hunt program is available on the DNR website dnr.wi.gov, keyword "LTH."
