35 special hunts are still up for grabs this Spring

PRATT­­– The 2014 Spring Special Hunts draw may be over, but for several lucky turkey hunters, there’s still a chance to enjoy a special hunt this season. A total of 35 special hunts have remained unspoken for as of March 5, 2014. These hunts range anywhere from one day to one month and are offered on a variety of different lands, including state parks, wildlife areas, Walk In Hunting Areas (WIHA's), national wildlife refuges, city and county properties, and other locations throughout the state.

Of the 35 hunts still available, 21 are “mentor” hunts, 12 are “youth” hunts, and two are “open” hunts. Mentored hunts are open to both youth and novice hunters supervised by a mentor 21 or older who may also hunt. Youth hunts require parties to include at least one youth 18 or younger, accompanied by an adult 21 or older who will not hunt. And open hunts are available to all successful applicants, regardless of age or hunting experience.
