Print Friendly, PDF & Email

HOLDERNESS, N.H. — A free workshop covering the basics of hunting wild turkeys is being offered by the New Hampshire Fish and Game Department on Saturday, April 8, from 9 a.m. to noon at the Owl Brook Hunter Education Center on Perch Pond Road in Holderness. Pre-registration is required. To sign up for the workshop, or for more information, call Sean Williamson at (603) 536-1290.

The clinic will be conducted by Fish and Game hunter education instructor Dave Priebe, who is also on the professional staff of Quaker Boy, a turkey call manufacturer. The seminar will cover turkey hunting and calling, as well as turkey hunting safety.

Participants are encouraged to bring their own turkey hunting guns and have a chance to pattern them, so they can see results for at least two different types of ammunition. Fish and Game wildlife programs supervisor Mark Ellingwood will be on hand to talk about turkey natural history and behavior. There will also be door prizes. For more about N.H. Fish and Game’s Owl Brook Hunter Education Center in Holderness, including directions to the center, visit http://www.wildlife.state.nh.us/Hunting/hunter_ed_center.htm.

New Hampshire’s spring gobbler season runs from May 3 through May 31. The youth turkey hunting weekend will take place April 29-30. Hunting licenses and turkey permits can be purchased online at http://www.nhfishandgame.com.
