May 1, 2015DNR ends turkey season with youth hunt
The S.C. Department of Natural Resources Take One Make One Program hosted a Turkey Clinic on April 25 in Chesterfield. This being the last Saturday of the season a turkey clinic seemed ideal for those youth who wished to learn how to hunt turkeys.
Twenty-one participated in the event. Each got the opportunity to shoot a shotgun from a turkey blind at a stationary target. Lots of purr and gobbles were heard at the turkey calling station where each participant was given a turkey call donated by Cabela’s of Rock Hill. The highlight of the clinic was “Cooking with Eric and Cleaning with Don” which insured all enjoyed a wild turkey lunch of wild turkey nuggets and turkey tacos. The clinic was sponsored by Carolina One Shot Buck Masters of Chesterfield and introduced students to turkey calling, hunting and preparing blinds, marksmanship skills, as well as game care and prep. The clinic offered many other tips to insure a safe and successful turkey hunt.
