SALEM, Ore.—Get ready for spring turkey hunting season before the season opens statewide on April 15! Register now for one of the three spring turkey hunting workshops ODFW is hosting in early April—two for kids and the first-ever ODFW turkey hunting workshop for adults on April 7 at the White River Wildlife Area in Tygh Valley.

Each workshop will cover turkey hunting skills such as scouting, turkey biology, using a turkey call, and gear. Participants will also get the chance to practice shotgun skills, with all necessary gear (including shotguns and shells) provided by ODFW and partners.

Workshop dates and locations follow; click the event link for more information.

Workshop registration is not available at license sale agents. Note that youth or parent must be registering from the youth’s online account to register for the youth-only workshops online at ODFW’s Licensing Page.

  • Youth turkey hunting clinic (age 17 and under), April 6, Denman Wildlife Area (Central Point), 8:30 a.m.-2 p.m. Cost: free, but hunter education certification is required to participate. Hosted by ODFW and Rogue Valley Chapter of the Oregon Hunters Association. Register by April 1. Email with questions.

“Calling in a tom during spring turkey season can be as exciting as calling in an elk,” said Catherine Sander-Korte, ODFW outdoor skills. “These workshops will leave you ready to get outdoors for this spring turkey season.”

Spring turkey season runs April 15-May 31 statewide in Oregon, with a special youth-only hunt April 13-14.
