Wallkill River National Wildlife Refuge is partnering with the National Wild Turkey Federation to offer a mentored turkey hunt and workshop to youth, ages 10-16, that have little to no hunting experience.

Space is limited to 2 hunters selected via lottery drawing. The workshop day will occur on Saturday, April 15, from 8 a.m. to noon at Owens Station Crossing, Sussex, N.J., which will include a meet and greet with mentors and a turkey hunting seminar. The workshop day is open to all youth, regardless of whether they were selected for the hunt or not. The hunt will take place at the refuge on the NJ Youth Turkey Day, Saturday April 22.

Shotguns will be provided to selected hunters if needed. Hunter must attend the workshop day to participate in the hunt. Participants will be chosen by lottery. A parent or guardian must accompany the youth at the workshop day and during the hunt.

To register for this opportunity, contact Chelsea DiAntonio — Refuge Specialist, at 973-702-7266, Ext. 18 by Friday, March 17. Participation is limited to 2 hunters. The lottery drawing for available spots will take place on March 20.
