Do you want to learn to turkey hunt, but didn't know where to start?
The Department of Natural Resources can help.
A spring Learn to Hunt Turkey event at Crex Meadows Wildlife Area is a good place to start.
You will be paired up with an experienced hunter, learn about conservation, hunting tactics, and firearm safety during the classroom portion of the learn to hunt program and then get a chance to experience a Wisconsin hunting tradition.
Learn to hunt events welcome novice adult (over 18 years old) hunters. The DNR encourages friends or families to sign up together
No license is required and, since novices will be hunting with a mentor, hunter education requirements are waived. The Learn to Hunt event is free. Equipment will be provided if needed.
The classroom segment, plus a range session for practice is scheduled for April 3 from 5-9 p.m. at Crex Meadows. The hunt will follow on April 5-6 April 6. Pre-registration is required by March 27. Space limited to 12 mentees. Crex Meadows is also seeking mentors to guide aspiring turkey hunters on the hunt from dawn until noon.
