GoWild and the Council to Advance Hunting and the Shooting Sports have partnered up to help new turkey hunters have a great season, even during the social distancing era.
GoWild, a social media app for outdoor enthusiasts, collected questions from beginner turkey hunters. The duo is now calling for help and advice from veteran hunters in answering these questions to help bring in a new generation of hunters.
“We’ve never had a better time in the modern era to become a hunter,” said Brad Luttrell, the Cofounder, CEO of GoWild. “One of the only places you can exercise safely is outside. Grocery stores are suffering shortages. And time outside is critical for your mental wellbeing. We hope this online mentorship effort informs people on how to have a fun, safe and successful turkey season.”
The Council and social media company are calling for veteran turkey hunters to record themselves answering a few of the top questions (listed below) and to post their advice on GoWild in the Turkey Hunting Trail (an easy-to-find forum within GoWild).
“Imagine when you started hunting and the value of having a national community at your fingertips, ready to help you learn. It’s a truly awesome resource, but only with the help of veterans who will volunteer their time now. We hope partners join us to help get as many new hunters afield as we can.”How to Help
“With the hunting community’s help, we can crowdsource answers for new hunters as they join the ranks,” said Samantha Pedder, the Director of Operations for the Council.

Here are my suggestions for the old man, as it relates to hunting, fishing and that grand ol’ dad hobby, barbecuing.
