New hunters who want to learn about turkey hunting are invited to sign up for a free workshop put on by the Indiana Department of Natural Resources at the Kankakee Fish and Wildlife Area. “Hunt, Fish, Eat: Wild Turkey” is part of the ongoing “Hunt, Fish, Eat” program that is run by the DNR Division of Fish & Wildlife and teaches self-reliance. The program is free.
Workshops are scheduled March 15, 20 and 27 at Kankakee Fish & Wildlife Area in North Judson. The Saturday sessions will run from noon until 3 p.m. CST, and the evening session will take place from 6 until 9 p.m. Participants must attend all three sessions.
The program will focus on laws and regulations, firearms and safety, locating a hunting spot, tracking and field dressing your harvest, and handling and preparing your turkey for the table. Each session will include an opportunity to sample wild turkey recipes and examine hunting gear and resources. All equipment is provided. Space is limited, so hunters are encouraged to register early by clicking here.
