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 there will be another “Turkey Hunting 101” class 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.
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.
