The Missouri Department of Conservation (MDC), in partnership with the Kenneth Kirchman Foundation, invites new youth turkey hunters to register for a free clinic and mentored hunt, April 9–10, near Revere in Clark County.

The program will begin with a clinic at 4 p.m. on Friday, April 9, where participants will learn tactics for harvesting a turkey, meet their mentors, and practice shooting and calling-in turkeys.

On Saturday morning, participants will head into the woods to hunt with their mentors. Lunch and other activities will follow.

“This is an awesome opportunity for new hunters to go turkey hunting with an experienced mentor, learn about turkeys, and maybe even harvest one,” said MDC Conservation Educator Rob Garver.
