Volunteers, landowners make special hunt possible

The mentored turkey hunt for youths began nine years ago in Minnesota, and is made possible by the Minnesota Department of Natural Resources and volunteers with the National Wild Turkey Federation. In Renville County, members of the local Pheasant's Forever chapter also assisted as volunteers.

There were 340 applicants for 305 hunts in 30 areas across the state, according to Michael Kurre, program coordinator with the DNR. He said the limiting factor in being able to introduce the first-time turkey hunters are the number of private hunting spots made available by landowners.
