The 2018 Juniors Turkey Camp was a success. Our youth saw and heard turkeys. 11 of our youth hunters harvested turkeys. We had a total of 283 people in the camp, including staff, mentors, and volunteers. We had 105 new people in the camp. We had 103 total hunters and 46 of them were brand new to hunting and to camp.
Thursday and Friday were extremely windy days and cold. Friday was cold with a snowstorm in the early evening, which disappeared by Saturday afternoon. Sunday was a beautiful day.
We would like to thank all of our mentors and volunteers. We could not do this without you. We would also like to thank our sponsors, Arizona Elk Society, National Wild Turkey Federation, Rocky Mountain Elk Foundation, Navajo County Search and Rescue, Arizona Game and Fish Department, and Arizona Game and Fish Department Region 1.
