â€śHunt, Fish, Eat: Wild Turkeyâ€ť is part of the ongoing â€śHunt, Fish, Eatâ€ť program that is run by the DNR Division of Fish & Wildlife and teaches self-reliance. The program is free.
Installments of the workshop series are March 15, 20 and 27 at Kankakee Fish & Wildlife Area in North Judson.
Weeknight sessions will run from 6 to 9 p.m., and the Saturday session will run from noon to 3 p.m., local time. Location specifics will be provided to registered participants.
Completing the program requires attending each of the three sessions.
Participants must be new hunters.
The program will focus on laws and regulations, firearms and safety, locating a hunting spot, tracking and field dressing your harvest, and handling and preparing your turkey for the table. Each session will include an opportunity to sample wild turkey recipes and examine hunting gear and resources.
