Learn to Game Bird Hunt

Learn to Hunt - Adult Turkey Hunting Workshop - Bend

Wild turkey is a great “first hunt” for new hunters. Turkeys are plentiful, seasons are long, and gear is simple.

This workshop is for adults. Participants will learn everything needed to start hunting this spring, including turkey biology, turkey hunting opportunities, turkey identification, scouting, and hunting techniques. The workshop is designed for new hunters, but all skill levels are welcome to attend.

Topics Covered:

  • Turkey regulations, behavior, biology, and conservation
  • Spring hunting tactics
  • Setting decoys, blinds, and calling
  • How to safely handle, fire, and pattern shotguns
  • Field dressing and cooking wild turkey


What to Bring

Bring a lunch and snacks. Dress for the weather. We will be outside for much of the day.

ODFW will demonstrate how to setup and pattern a shotgun for turkey hunting. Participants can bring and pattern their own shotgun if they choose – staff will inspect prior to use. If you bring a shotgun, you must supply your own ammunition.
