Wild Turkey Hunting

Tim Nelson from MPR News reported yesterday on a new program being offered by the Minnesota DNR for those who have never hunted, but are curious about how they could get involved. This last Thursday evening Jay Johnson who leads new hunter recruitment for the state agency held an introductory meeting at the Seward Community Co-Op in Minneapolis regarding a turkey hunt that will be held this spring for new hunters.

For those of you following Modern Carnivore, you’ll recall that Jay led the program last fall that brought new hunters into the field to hunt deer. This is a great addition to this successful fledgling program. It’s a significant amount of work for people like Jay and the mentors who donate their time, but well worth the efforts. We’ll cover more of this program as it progresses.
