Young hunters will be able to participate in the fifth annual Youth Turkey Hunt April 2 at Clinton Lake.
Hunters ages 10 to 16 will be drawn from a pool of applicants and then can hunt in an area that is usually closed to hunters. The hunters will need a special permit and be helped by an adult mentor.
The event, which is put on by the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers at Clinton Lake, the Kansas Department of Wildlife and Parks and the National Wild Turkey Federation, is to help young hunters become interested in turkey hunting in an ethical manner.
The event will take place from half an hour before sunrise to sundown that day.
Applications are available online at www.nwk.usace.army.mil/cl/Hunting-Special.cfm or can be picked up at the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers Visitor Center at Clinton Lake. Anyone with questions should call 843-7665.
