Turkey hunting class available in Grand Junction

Craig Daily Press Staff Report

Colorado Parks and Wildlife will offer a class on turkey hunting in Grand Junction on March 20. The class, called "Turkey Hunting 101," will be a one-night affair taught by veteran turkey hunters about one of the fastest-growing hunting activities in the U.S. over the past couple decades.

According to a release from Parks and Wildlife, turkey license sales have grown each year in recent years, and turkey populations are still growing, making them a popular option for novice hunters. The class will cover local turkey populations, turkey calling basics and field tactics, as well as tips about public land and firearm safety.

The class is from 6 to 9:30 p.m. March 20 at the Parks and Wildlife Hunter Education Building, 711 Independent Ave. in Grand Junction. Space for the class is limited and must be reserved in advance. For more information or to make a reservation, call 970-255-6100.
