Turkey Hunting Camp 2021

On May 7, 2021 a group of thirty-plus people converged on Ideal Township in north-central Minnesota for turkey hunting camp. Most were new hunters and from as far away as Texas and New York. Others were experienced hunters who had never been turkey hunting. Most importantly we had some amazing mentors who worked tirelessly to get all the new turkey hunters out into the field to safely chase after some spring gobblers.

Three of our new hunters were successful in the hunt over the weekend. Congrats Dawn, Nate and Rya…Jim and Greg…and Nolan and Joe!
