Geauga Park District’s Ranger Department Offering Wild Turkey Clinic for Beginning Youth Hunters on May 5

For the first time under National Rifle Association certification, Geauga Park District’s Ranger Department is offering a Wild Turkey Clinic for Beginning Hunters on Saturday, May 5th, 9:00 a.m. to 1:00 p.m. at Big Creek Park’s Donald W. Meyer Center.

Admission will be limited to 10 students, so please do not delay to register at Geauga Park District or 440-286-9516. Students of any age will be permitted and need not have a current hunting license to attend, but all must take a hunter education class and obtain a current hunting license in order to actually hunt.

Geauga Park District Rangers Mike Benesh, Jim Kailburn and Joel Firem earned certificates last summer to teach clinics sponsored by the National Rifle Association using updated training manuals supported by the highly acclaimed NRA Hunter Skills Series books. These clinics’ focus is on the animals and their habitats, the goal being to make attendees more effective hunters.

“This offering will provide more in-depth information about Wild Turkey, how they behave and where they can be found,” Ranger Benesh said. “Anybody who’s hunted a while already knows a lot of this information, though, so this clinic will be geared more toward kids and beginners.”

Watch program listings at Geauga Park District or call 440-286-9516 for other upcoming clinic information as it becomes available.
