Mark Twain Lake -The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers at Mark Twain Lake, in partnership with the Mark Twain Lake Forest Council and the Missouri State Chapter of the National Wild Turkey Federation will hold an apprentice/youth Spring Turkey Hunt Special Event at Mark Twain Lake on May 9 and May 10. For the purpose of public awareness, the participants of the special event will be permitted to hunt in areas traditionally designated as no hunting zones. These areas include: Frank Russell Recreation Area, John Spalding Recreation Area, Robert Allen Recreation Area, South Fork Recreation Area, and Indian Creek Recreation Area.
The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers hopes that this event will introduce new hunters to the adventures of spring turkey hunting and promote the value of public land experiences.
