TCSC Youth Turkey Hunt Safety Meeting

April 8 @ 5:00 pm - 7:00 pm

TCSC Youth Turkey Hunt Download Youth Turkey Hunt Application

Friday night April 8th 5pm at the archery club for all participants and mentors to go over safety and program information. 

Youth accepted in the Youth Turkey Hunt program are asked to commit one evening Friday, April 8th and one full day to the hunt: April 9th & 10th. Friday evening before the hunt, mentors and youth will meet at Northwood’s Archers clubhouse. This evening rendezvous is where youth are taught how to properly handle and shoot a shotgun. In addition, youth are educated on the distinctions between toms, jakes and hens. Finally, a short turkey calling demonstration is performed to prepare for the hunt. For participating, youth receive a variety of useful tools including a camouflage facemask and gloves, a turkey call, and educational materials. A dinner is provided so youth have the opportunity to plan their hunt with their mentors.

Saturday morning, bright and early, youth meet their mentors and head to their hunting ground. During the hunt, mentors will be providing guidance for a safe and hopefully successful hunt. In the past, our youth spring turkey hunt has had a 40 to 50% success rate. This is very high considering this is the first experience for most youth. Back at the clubhouse, warm beverages and snacks are waiting the returning hunters. As the youth hunters and mentors arrive, stories are shared and birds are tagged. A group photo is taken before hunters head home or they leave the clubhouse try their luck in the afternoon.
