Field to Fork: Turkey Scouting & Shed Hunting




The National Deer Association is partnering with Sandhill Wildlife Area to bring new and emergent outdoorsmen and women to the woods this spring to learn how to scout for turkey and search for shed deer antlers. This class will cover spring turkey movements and habits along with biology and some hunting and calling tactics.
