Hayward, California (EastBayDaily) — Wilderness Unlimited (W.U.), a California and Oregon outdoor hunting company and the National Wild Turkey Federation (NWTF) will sponsor the 17th annual Wild Turkey Hunting Expo at Wilderness Unlimited’s Sacramento Valley RV Camp, located on Highway 20 near Williams, CA. This is the "Original Wild Turkey Expo." There will be a seminar on Saturday, Mar. 3 starting at 10 a.m. which is free and open to the public. The seminar is part of W.U.’s ongoing hunter education program.
The seminar will be co-hosted by Terry Knight and Ryan Mathis. Both are experienced turkey hunters and host hunting seminars around the state.
“Everything there is to know about wild turkey hunting will be discussed in this student-friendly environment,” Richard Copeland, of Wilderness Unlimited, said. “Topics to be covered include: turkey habits, calls, how to call, shotguns, ammo, patterning your gun, camo, blinds, archery, hunting on public land and will include cleaning and cooking.”
Wilderness Unlimited is California’s largest manager of private ranches, offering more than 25 different ranches for turkey hunting. However, extensive attention will be given to locating birds on public lands including F&G managed wildlife areas and BLM lands.
A hot lunch will be served for this free event, courtesy of the non-profit, Wilderness Unlimited Foundation (WUF). The organization is asking for a donation for the lunch of $10 for adults and $8 for children.
