Turkey Hunting Seminars, April 2 & 3

The Vermont Fish & Wildlife Department is hosting two free turkey hunting seminars this spring - one on Saturday, April 2, the other on Sunday, April 3.

"Both experienced and first-time turkey hunters stand to benefit from these seminars," said Hunter Education Training Coordinator John Pellegrini. "We will provide A-Z hunting information, including safe hunting practices, specialized equipment, calls, site setup, and other strategies for harvesting turkeys."

Both seminars will be held 9:00 a.m. to 1:00 p.m. The April 2 seminar will be at the Barre Fish and Game Club on Gun Club Road in Barre. The April 3 Seminar will be at the Hartland Fire Department in Hartland.

Certified Volunteer Hunter Education Instructors Jeff Blanchard and Brett Ladue will be leading the seminars, with Jeff teaching on April 2 and Brett instructing on April 3.
