NH: Turkey hunting shot patterning and safety clinic offered April 7 in Hillsborough

CONCORD, N.H. — The New Hampshire Fish and Game Hunter Education Program, in cooperation with Morse Sporting Goods of Hillsborough, will host a Turkey Hunting Shot Patterning and Safety Clinic on Saturday, April 7, 2012, from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. at Morse Sporting Goods, 85 Contoocook Falls Road, Hillsborough, NH.

The clinic will be an opportunity for hunters to have the valuable experience of experimenting with an array of various turkey loads by different manufacturers on an economical “shotshell by shotshell” basis. In other words, hunters will be able to try different loads by different manufacturers at various yardages, without purchasing an entire box of shells! Determine which loads work the best for you and your shotgun.

New Hampshire Fish and Game Hunter Education instructors will be on hand to assist new and veteran hunters. Shotguns and a variety of chokes will be available, as well.

“Knowledge of one’s firearm, its capabilities as well as limitations, makes us all safer and more ethical sportsmen,” said Steve Sweeney, a volunteer Hunter Education instructor who will help facilitate the clinic.

If you plan on attending the Turkey Hunting Patterning Clinic or have any questions, please call Morse Sporting Goods at 603-464-3444.

New Hampshire’s spring turkey hunting season runs from May 3-31, 2012. The youth turkey hunting weekend takes place April 28-29, 2012. For more information on turkey hunting in New Hampshire, and online license sales, visit http://www.huntnh.com/Hunting/Hunt_species/hunt_turkey.htm.
