A great way to get started in the sport of hunting is to chase those big old gobblin’ toms. New hunters can experience the excitement of calling in a strutting, rutting tom, plus learn hunting ethics, sportsmanship, focus and responsibility. Colorado Parks and Wildlife offers beginner programs throughout the state, so what are you waiting for? Get involved. Get out there and learn to hunt.
