Youth 8-17, and their families, can learn how to safely and successfully hunt turkeys during this clinic sponsored by Oregon Hunters Association, Celilo Bowmen and the Oregon Department of Fish and Wildlife.
Wild turkey hunting can be a great way to introduce your child to hunting—not to mention it’s a lot of fun! This youth and family clinic will teach the family everything from safely shooting a shotgun and bow, to calling techniques, turkey identification, scouting and turkey biology.
Lunch will be provided and there will be raffles at the end of the event.
Pre-registration is required. Your registration fee is non-refundable. Youth ages 8 - 17 must be accompanied by an adult. A hunter education card is not required to attend this event.
Each vehicle at the event needs a Wildlife Area Parking Pass. These will not be available for purchase at the venue and need to be purchased prior to the date of the event. (They come free with the purchase of a hunting license.) Overnight camping is available before and after the event. Wildlife Area Parking Permits Required. Questions regarding the White River Wildlife area can call Chase Brown 541-544-2126.
IMPORTANT: The event will be held at a campsite along Happy Ridge/Badger Creek Road in the middle of the White River Wildlife Area. To get there, make sure to follow the map links below or input exact GPS coordinates into your phone or mapping device. Navigating to “White River Wildlife Area” on your device will likely put you at the wildlife area’s main office – far from where the event will be held. There is limited to no cell service in the wildlife area, so plan ahead.
Equipment is provided; however, if a youth has a shotgun they want to pattern, they are welcome to bring it. It's going to be cold this time of year. Bring warm clothes, and extra layers
Please note: Youth must login to their own ODFW customer license account to purchase registration for this event. Parents will not be able to login to their account to purchase the registration. Please provide an email for each student registered
