Charlie Wanty was only a teenager when he shot his first turkey in 2004.
Twenty years later, his love of turkey hunting is stronger than ever and he is now president of the Waupaca, Wis., learn-to-hunt program that helps first-timers enter the sport. More than 30 novices were in this year’s program, held April 6-7 at Brooks Dairy Farm near Waupaca.
“I didn’t grow up in a hunting family,” Wanty said. “I started hanging with some buddies who liked to hunt. This program was an outlet to get into something.”
