Free beginner turkey hunting workshops

Registration is open for a DNR workshop series in March at two locations designed to teach newcomers self-reliance and how to hunt wild turkey. “Hunt, Fish, Eat: Wild Turkey” is part of the ongoing “Hunt, Fish, Eat” program run by the DNR Division of Fish & Wildlife. The program is free.

Installments of the workshop series are March 15, 20 and 27 at Kankakee Fish & Wildlife Area in North Judson and March 18, 25 and 29 at Morgan-Monroe State Forest in Martinsville. All weeknight sessions will run from 6 to 9 p.m., and Saturday sessions will run from noon to 3 p.m. local time. Location specifics will be provided to registered participants.

Completing the program requires attending each of the three sessions, and participants must be new hunters.

The program will focus on laws and regulations, firearms and safety, locating a hunting spot, tracking and field dressing your harvest, and handling and preparing your turkey for the table. Each session will include an opportunity to sample wild turkey recipes and examine hunting gear and resources.

All equipment is provided. Space is limited, so hunters are encouraged to register early at wildlife.IN.gov/7548.htm.

CookIN Gone Wild

Indiana’s “CookIN Gone Wild” video series now teaches viewers not only how to prepare their wild game, but also how to harvest it. The video series launched last year on Indiana DNR’s YouTube channel and initially focused only on cooking. Now, it also includes everything viewers need to know to harvest the featured fish or game animal; a format called field-to-table.

The first episode in the new format highlights steelhead trout and Coho salmon fishing on Trail Creek in Michigan City. Viewers will learn some steelhead and salmon biology, equipment requirements and fishing techniques including some insider secrets.

The video ends with a recipe for the harvested game. The steelhead episode offers a recipe for a healthy, open-faced steelhead salad sandwich.
