Vermont –-( The Barre Fish and Game Club is now accepting essay-style applications for its new Outdoor Adventure series.

The first adventure will be an “all-inclusive” youth turkey hunt. It will take place in the Central Vermont area. Lodging and food will be supplied Friday night through Sunday afternoon on the Vermont Youth Turkey Hunting Weekend; April 23 & 24, 2011.

Hunting destinations will be pre-scouted and landowner permission obtained. Our intention is to provide children and their families with a turkey hunting adventure “straight out of the hunting shows.”

Knowledgeable, qualified and experienced hosts from the Barre Fish & Game Club will accompany the children and families throughout the adventure.

The second adventure scheduled will be a bear hunt over bait during the New Hampshire black bear season. More details for this hunt will become available during the summer of 2011.
