Minnesota Gov. Tim Walz hosts annual turkey hunt in Northfield

A large group of people came out to Northfield, Minn., on Saturday, April 15, 2023, for Gov. Tim Walz’s annual turkey hunt. Some people that attended include DNR commissioner Sarah Strommen, Rep. Rick Hansen, DFL-South St. Paul, Sen. Foung Hawj, DFL-St. Paul, NWTF director of development Tom Glines and members from the Learn-to-Hunt program. (Photo by Brian Mozey/Outdoor News)

Hunters pursued gobblers on private land in Dakota County. The only turkey that was tagged from the day came from Greta Alquist, who is a member of Minnesota DNR’s R3 program (recruit, retain, reactivate). She was guided by James Burnham, DNR’s R3 coordinator.
The R3 program engages people who aren’t familiar with hunting and fishing to learn from mentors as they embark on hunts or fishing trips together.
