Free Turkey Hunter Education Clinics will again be offered this year around the state. These free clinics are presented by volunteer instructors and are sponsored by the Wisconsin Department of Natural Resources and the Wisconsin Chapter of the National Wild Turkey Federation.

Clinics typically last two to three hours and are designed to cover wild turkey biology and behavior, hunting methods, regulations, safety precautions, and landowner / hunter ethics, as well as tips for scoring trophy birds and a few ideas for preparing turkeys at home. The Turkey Hunter Education Clinics are for all ages and experience levels from beginning turkey hunters interested in learning wild turkey hunting techniques to experienced wild turkey hunters looking to brush up on their skills and learn new techniques.

These clinics will be held from late February through late March. Information and a listing of the dates and locations for each clinic are now available on the wild turkey page of the DNR website or may be obtained by calling the DNR Customer Call Center from 7 a.m. through 10 p.m., seven days a week, at 1-888-WDNRINFo (1-888-936-7463). For the latest additions or changes in the schedule, please refer to the DNR website.
