Colorado youths can apply to win turkey hunting trip

Colorado Parks and Wildlife is offering three young hunters a chance to win a mentored spring turkey hunt on private land near Meeker on April 12 and 13.

As part of the agency's Hunter Outreach Program, the opportunity is a continuing effort to instill an interest and respect for wildlife, the outdoors and the traditions of hunting in Colorado's youths.

Applicants 18 and younger that posses a valid hunter safety card must send a letter of interest by Monday to: DWM Bailey Franklin, P.O. Box 2181, Meeker, CO 81641.

The letter should indicate an interest in the hunt and include the youth's name, address and Hunter Education card number. It must also include a phone number for the applicant's parent or guardian.

In addition, each letter must include an essay of 500 words or less about hunting and why the applicant should be selected. The essay must be written by the applicant and in their own words. The applicant's interest in hunting, limited experience and desire to learn are suggested topics for the required essay.

The three winning participants will be notified by Friday. They also must be able to attend a pre-hunt orientation at Colorado Parks and Wildlife's Meeker office from 3 to 5 p.m. April 11, accompanied by a parent, guardian or mentor.

For more information, call the CPW office in Meeker at 970-878-6090. To learn more about the Hunter Outreach Program, visit
