Women who want to learn about turkey hunting have a chance to learn from experts at a two-day clinic sponsored by the Missouri Department of Conservation.

The clinic will be held March 10 and April 28 at Duck Creek Conservation Area near Puxico as part of the Conservation Department's Missouri's Outdoors Women series. It is designed for beginners and will consist of a day of training on the first date and a guided hunt on the second. The training will include classroom and outdoor, hands-on training with firearms.

Subjects to be covered include the history and biology of the eastern wild turkey, hunting safety, equipment and techniques and shotgun shooting.

Applications are due by Feb. 23. Applicants must be at least 16 and will be required to purchase turkey hunting permits, which will be available at the clinic site on March 10. Those born on or after Jan. 1, 1967, must complete a hunter education course and display their certification to purchase permits. Registrants will pay a $25 reservation fee that will be returned at the events.
