Kansas Governor's One Shot Turkey Hunt

Wednesday, April 17, 2019

Over the years the mission of the Hunt has expanded, with the focus now including education and creating opportunities to pass on the hunting heritage of our state to our youth and others who participate in the event through the Kansas Youth Program, the National JAKES Program, the Hunting Heroes Program and the Willis Scholarship Foundation. Now an 501(c)(3) organization, these programs of the Hunt help ensure that future generations will appreciate the importance of wildlife conservation and management while continuing to pass on the hunting heritage. We are grateful for the many sponsors and celebrity hunters who generously support our mission. This is an invitation only event. Nominations are taken for new hunters and are chosen each year from the prospect list. Recommendations come from the current Governor, past hunters, volunteers or friends of the hunt. Contact and biographical information must be submitted to the Turkey Hunt office for a prospect to be considered.
