ROLLA, Mo. — The Missouri Department of Conservation (MDC) invites new turkey hunters to get ready for spring turkey season at an introductory workshop in Rolla on March 20. All ages 10 years and older may register for this event, but children younger than 16 years old must be accompanied by an adult. This free workshop will take place 6-8 p.m. on Tuesday, March 20, at Marguerite Bray Conservation Area, 14220 Bridge School Road, in Rolla.

“Turkey hunting is one of the most exciting outdoor pursuits,” said MDC Conservation Educator Travis Mills. “Come join us to learn about hunting wild turkeys in Missouri and enhance your  knowledge and safety concerning turkey hunting.”

This free class is designed for new turkey hunters, and participants do not need to bring anything with them to the workshop. MDC staff will teach about hunting methods, clothing, scouting, wild turkey biology, and answer questions from participants.

Participants must preregister for this course at MDC’s online event management site:
