The North Carolina Wildlife Resources Commission will be talkin’ turkey during a series of turkey hunting webinars next month.
Each free, hourlong course will cover topics including biology, species habits, habitats, scouting, essential equipment, setup, effective shot placement, decoy placement and hunting strategies. Classes will conclude with an interactive question-and-answer session.
Throughout the series, instructors will provide a thorough overview on how to prepare for a hunt, what to expect, and how to enjoy time in the wild while hunting.
“The webinars are especially intended for those that have never hunted and lack access to a hunting mentor, although they are open to all skill levels,” said WRC Hunting Engagement Coordinator Walter “Deet” James.
The series will be held over the course of three consecutive evenings as follows:
- Feb. 7, Biology for Hunters, Regulations, Where to Hunt and Scouting, 7 – 8 p.m.
- Feb. 8, Firearms, Ammo, Clothing and Miscellaneous Equipment, 7 – 8 p.m.
- Feb. 9, Hunting Techniques and Strategies, 7 – 8 p.m.
Space is limited and online preregistration is required.
Participants will receive a Zoom link after registering via a confirmation email.
The class will be recorded and a link to the recording will be emailed to registered participants by March 1.
Wild turkey open seasons for male or bearded turkeys are April 1-7 for youth under 18 and April 8-May 6 statewide.
Turkey hunting rules and regulations are available in the 2022 – 2023 North Carolina Regulations Digest. For more information on turkey seminars and other skills based seminars, visit ncwildlife.org/sbs or contact James at email@example.com or at 984-202-1387.
