With the youth turkey season in the rear-view mirror and the regular, three-week season coming up fast, the Missouri Department of Conservation (MDC) reminds hunters they can create lasting memories with the First Turkey Award. The First Turkey Program provides free commemorative certificates suitable for framing. You can even add a photo of the proud hunter with his or her bird. Creating a tangible reminder of a once-in-a-lifetime experience begins with visiting mdc.mo.gov/node/10469. The same site has forms for a hunter’s first turkey or deer, for youths or adults. The parallel program for anglers is the First Fish Program. The First-Fish Award form is available at mdc.mo.gov/node/10474.
