Youth Turkey Workshop

MA Youth Turkey Program description

Part One – Pre-hunt Workshop
This part of the program is designed to provide young hunters with specialized training and instruction relative to turkey hunting as well as reinforcing what they learned in the MA Hunter Education Program. The pre-hunt workshop is like a “dress rehearsal” for the actual turkey hunt. Young hunters will have the opportunity to practice all aspects of a safe hunt in the pre-hunt workshop which is held a week or two before the actual turkey hunt.

The workshop consists of field exercises simulating real turkey hunting conditions and scenarios as well as giving youth an opportunity to practice and develop their shooting skills. By getting outdoors and practicing in the field, young hunters will learn where and how to properly set up, how to call birds, determine safe zones of fire, and understand shoot/don’t shoot scenarios (properly identifying your target, always being aware of obstacles and sighting past your target). In addition, the appropriate clothing and gear necessary for a safe and productive turkey hunting experience will be discussed and demonstrated during the field exercises. Hunting regulations and ethics will be discussed throughout the various activities of the workshop.
