Missouri: Turn a memory into a memento with a first-turkey certificate
You can even add a photo of your favorite hunter
JEFFERSON CITY, MO – Shooting that first turkey is a landmark event in a young hunter's life. The Missouri Department of Conservation (MDC) helps turn such milestones into mementoes.
MDC's First Turkey Program gives participants free commemorative certificates suitable for framing. You can even add a photo of the proud hunter with his or her bird. This tangible recognition of young hunters' achievements provides permanent reminders that can either substitute for or complement a taxidermist's mount. To create a first-turkey certificate, visit www.mdc.mo.gov/node/10469. The same site has forms for a youth's first deer as well as first deer/turkey certificates for adults.
The parallel program for anglers is the First Fish Program. The First-Fish certificate form is available at www.mdc.mo.gov/node/10474.
