Upcoming Turkey Clinics and Mentored Hunts
« on: August 10, 2017, 10:30:22 AM »
In case you missed it, WDFW is advertising a couple of turkey hunting clinics this weekend at the Union Gap (Yakima) Cabelas. Rich Mann is going to be teaching the class. He's a great guy to talk to about getting started turkey hunting, and the history of the WA flocks.

Pre-registration is not required.

Also, Aaron Garcia with the WDFW is the mentored hunt coordinator. If you or someone you know would like to sign up for a mentored hunt, his contact info is on the same link. They also do mentored hunts for other species.

I signed up for a mentored hunt and Aaron was great in coordinating dates. My mentor Chris did a great job and I had an awesome experience.

I'd totally recommend the mentored hunting program for 1st time or inexperienced hunters!

So far this year we have had over 60 people sign up for the mentored hunts, I have gotten most of them out with different mentors.  I took out 8 myself and we were able to harvest 7 birds.  It has been really fun and rewarding.  I will be setting up Spring mentored hunts soon.  Next year First Hunt Foundation will be doing deer mentoring for youths and waterfowl hunts.

I really have to thank the network of mentors and private landowners that are helping out, without them I couldn't make any of this happen.
