The Savannah National Wildlife Refuge and the National Wild Turkey Federation are partnering to provide 10 youth an opportunity to learn about turkey conservation and experience hunting turkey with a guide.
This structured hunt and educational event will be held March 28-30 and will focus on the development of turkey-hunting skills and conservation knowledge. Participating youth will be assigned a mentor and have the opportunity to be involved in a variety of skill-based and conservation-focused programs.
The Hunt & Learn Weekend will be limited to a maximum of 10 youth hunters, ages 15 and younger. All applications must be received at the Savannah NWR Visitor Center by Friday to be entered in the random drawing that will be held Feb. 7. Only selected applicants will be notified after the drawing. One adult guardian per child will be required to attend the event.
To be eligible to hunt, all selected applicants must have passed a state-approved hunter education course from any state and present their hunter-education card upon check-in. Youth hunters who do not yet have a card must complete either Georgia or South Carolina’s online course prior to the event and present their printed certificate upon check-in. The final written exams for both states will be administered at the event.
An information packet for the hunt, including more detailed information on how to apply as well as the application (FWS Form 3-2356), may be downloaded at fws.gov/savannah/hunting.html or requested by calling  843-784-2468.
