Young turkey hunters find

            Young turkey hunters find success :happy1:


 :coffee: ....
Learn to  :fudd: :Turkey: Program last weekend enjoyed the highest success rate on record for the program, with five turkeys harvested. :happy1:

Kevin Feind, coordinator of the program for the Gitchee Gumme Chapter of the National Wild Turkey Federation, reports that 12 hunters, ages 10 to 16, took part this year.

 :popcorn:
Each youth was paired with a mentor and issued a custom engraved slate call on the evening of April 7 in Wascott before heading into the field in the early morning hours of April 8.

In hunting on April 8 and 9, the young hunters took two adult toms and three jakes an all-time high for the program.

 :Clap: ...
"Everyone had a great time, and mentors loved to share their passion with the young hunters," Feind reported. "Building memories is a huge component of this program. It is far more than the chance to shoot a turkey. It is also about hearing the barred owls, the first morning robin, the hen at 5 feet, the time spent with a new friend, and just getting out in the woods on a beautiful spring morning."
