Outdoors Insider, with Dale Sunderlin: Let’s talk some turkey!

It’s getting close folks, turkey time! Yep, we’re less than a month away — April 22 being opening day of regular Ohio spring turkey season. With the days getting longer and sunshine becoming “somewhat” more prevalent many hunters are starting to daydream about longbeards, hooked spurs and the monarch of spring’s thundering gobble.

So without any further ado, let’s talk a little turkey.

Hunt drawings

The ODNR Division of Wildlife will offer special opportunities for young hunters seeking wild turkeys this spring. In addition to the statewide youth turkey hunting days April 20 and 21on both public and private lands, the Division of Wildlife will be holding a drawing on Saturday, April 6, for special, controlled youth turkey hunting opportunities at Mosquito Creek Wildlife Area as well as Ravenna Training and Logistics Site (TLS).

For Mosquito Creek Wildlife Area, hunting dates are on Saturdays and Sundays only, from April 20 through May 19.  Hunters 17 years and under must be present in order to participate in the drawing and must bring a valid 2013 hunting license. A total of 90 permits will be drawn.

For Ravenna TLS, hunting will take place on Saturday, April 20. A total of five permits will be drawn.

A “Jake’s Day” sponsored by the National Wild Turkey Federation, Trumbull Federation of Conservation Clubs and Trumbull Rod and Gun Club will begin at 9:30 a.m. where youngsters can participate in shooting sports and other activities. Lunch will be provided.  Registration for the youth day will begin at 8:30 a.m. at the Trumbull Rod and Gun Club, 6575 Phillips-Rice Road (one mile north of State Route 88) and the drawings will take place at 1 p.m. Youths not wishing to participate in the event may register anytime prior to the drawing. Participants in the “Jake’s Day” are encouraged to dress for the weather! For more information call Mosquito Creek Wildlife Area at 685-4776.
