Opportunity includes adults and military families

Applications open

Apply today for the learn to turkey hunt program. Applications close Feb. 12.

Hunts are sanctioned and managed between the Minnesota Department of Natural Resources and the National Wild Turkey Federation.

The hunts have three purposes

  1. They are intended as educational experiences to teach new turkey hunters (youth, their parents/guardians, adults and families) the skills and techniques needed to be life-long turkey hunters
  2. They provide first time and inexperienced turkey hunters a high-quality experience to help recruit them as hunters
  3. They provide opportunities to access specific locations that might otherwise be closed to hunting.
