Learning to hunt turkeys
Special to the EagleHerald
The High Falls Chapter of the National Wild Turkey Federation and Lake Noquebay Sportsman’s Club hosted their fifth annual Learn To Hunt Turkey program on April 6-8, and 13 first-time hunters attended a four-hour education day. They were paired with experienced hunters and headed to the field the next two days for a real turkey hunt. Each participant was issued a special harvest authorization permit and four lucky hunters harvested their first bird. First-time hunters, their mentors and other event volunteers are pictured, from left to right, front row: Kayleigh Scriven, Logan Marvin, Mason Gromowski, Hunter Oginski, Corinne McCullough, Kooper Scriven, Lexie Cornelius, and Calvin Peters; second row; Samara Hobbs, Brady Smith, Lance Rowley, Lee Carter, Jeff Peters, Kathleen Vincent, Ross Mielke and Nick Zaczak; third row: Steve Marvin, Dale Romback, Mike Kitt, Andy Lange, Jim Yonker, Mike Sievert, Dave Brower, Jeff Bonikowske, Dave Oginski and Aaron McCullough.
