Durango Offers Turkey Hunting Seminar

Last week I let you know about an opportunity to learn to hunt turkeys, plus apply for a mentored hunt opportunity. Now I’ve received notice that another “Turkey Hunting 101” class will be offered for you. I hope you can make it to one of the events. Pursuing gobbling toms is so much fun.

Turkey hunting seminar in Durango, April 7

DURANGO, Colo. — If you want to learn how to hunt turkeys or improve how you hunt these wily birds,  plan to attend a “Turkey Hunting 101” class in Durango, 8:45 a.m. – 3:30 p.m., April 7, at the Durango Public Library, 1900 East 3rd AVE.
The class is free and open to all ages and experience levels. Please, register online for this event at: https://www.register-ed.com/.
Colorado Parks and Wildlife staffers, who are also avid turkey hunters, will provide expert tips and instruction. Turkeys are abundant in southwestern Colorado. Licenses can be purchased over-the-counter, so no special application process is necessary. Spring turkey season lasts six weeks which also allows hunting during a time of relatively warm weather. Season dates for 2018 are April 14 through May 27.
The class will cover key concepts for turkey hunters, including: biology, bird identification, laws and regulations, equipment, scouting, hunting tactics, turkey calling, tracking, how to set up a blind, field-dressing and more. The first part of the class will be held indoors and in the afternoon it will move outside for a field session.
For more information, call the CPW office in Durango at 970-247-0855.
CPW is an enterprise agency, relying primarily on license sales, state parks fees and registration fees to support its operations, including: 41 state parks and more than 350 wildlife areas covering approximately 900,000 acres, management of fishing and hunting, wildlife watching, camping, motorized and non-motorized trails, boating and outdoor education. CPW’s work contributes approximately $6 billion in total economic impact annually throughout Colorado.
