    The date has been set for the 2018 STTU.....Feb. 17th, 2018.....The event will again be held at Lake Sutherland (rain or shine).....Event starts at 8:00 am.....Right now, I think we'll be having champion turkey caller Joe Slaton giving instruction and selling his Mother Lode calls.....They'll also be a raffle for a shotgun along with other turkey hunting stuff.....The money raised goes directly to our youth hunting and summer events.

    Fish and Wildlife officers will also be attendance to ask questions too.....Cleveland NF employees will be there as well.

    We'll have the shooting area available again this year.....Great place to pattern your turkey chokes and get shooting instruction.

    More turkeys have been seen this year and with good carry over from last year, we're hoping for even more success on the 7 birds that were taken last year.

    Just picked up a bunch of turkey targets for guys wanting to pattern their shotguns.....Remember, we now have to use non lead.....So your old lead chokes may pattern totally different with Hevi-Shot, or another alternative shot shell (and there's not many)

    ps.....Don't attempt to shoot steel thru a turkey extra full or heavily restricted choke tube.
