The annual 2012 Spring Turkey Tune-Up and drawing for special spring hunts held at Lake Sutherland will be held from 8:30 a.m. to 1 p.m. Saturday, Feb. 25, at San Vicente Reservoir, 12375 Moreno Ave., Lakeside.
Sponsored by the San Diego Chapter of the National Wild Turkey Federation and the City of San Diego Public Utilities Department, this annual event costs $10 and gives each hunter entry into the lottery hunt drawing, access to the complete slate of seminars and vendor booths, and entry into the raffle. Seminars are valuable even for hunters not drawn in the lottery for the Sutherland hunts.
John Massie, the retired DFG biologist responsible for getting turkeys released in San Diego County, will be talking about where birds can be found on public lands throughout the region in his 9 a.m. seminar. There will also be seminars on turkey calling, turkey hunting gear, and a gear drawing.
This year’s spring turkey hunting season runs from March 31 through May 6.
