Oregon Department of Fish and Wildlife officials today announced a series of youth turkey hunting clinics, scheduled at sites throughout Oregon.

Conducted by the Oregon Hunters Association, National Wild Turkey Federation, and ODFW’s Education Services Section, the clinics will cover safety, turkey calling, shotgun patterning, camouflage, and scouting tactics.

Programs are offered at the following locations:

* April 1: White River Wildlife Area (Friend – South of The Dalles )

* March 11: Douglas Ridge Rifle Club (Clackamas)

* April 1: Emerald Empire Gun Club (Eugene)

“The Oregon Hunters Association and National Wild Turkey Federation volunteers have done a fantastic job pulling together all the pieces for these events,” said Kenn Condon, ODFW Education Services Section Manager. “We appreciate the continued strong support of hunting association partners to make hunting safe, fun, and accessible for all Oregonians.”

Participants are not required to have hunter education certification to participate in the events, but participants younger than 18 will need to complete hunter education before participating in the spring turkey hunting season.
