Youth hunters: Apply by March 30 for chance to win guided spring turkey hunt on ranch near Medford
CENTRAL POINT, Ore.—ODFW’s Access and Habitat Program and the C2 Ranch are offering 10 youth hunters the chance to hunt turkey on the ranch’s 9,500-acre property near Medford this spring.
The deadline to apply is March 30 and winners will be drawn on April 2. Each winner will get a one-day guided hunt. A parent or other adult can also accompany the youth hunter.
Find the application at ODFW’s Weekly Recreation Report and follow the directions to apply. Applications must be received by 5 p.m. on March 30.
It is free to apply and free to hunt for the hunters that win the opportunity. All winners are still responsible for purchasing a hunting license and a turkey tag. Winners will also need to contact the ranch to set up a hunting time.
Youth age 9-15 without hunter education certification may apply and hunt under the Mentored Youth Hunter Program, but only during the general season (April 15-May 31), not the youth-only season (April 7-8).
The A and H Program funds projects that provide hunter access and/or improve wildlife habitat on private land in Oregon. The A and H Program is funded primarily by a $4 surcharge on hunting licenses, big game auction and raffle tag sales.
