Veterans' Turkey Camp

Wild turkeys are often referred to as a "gateway hunt." Because of their smaller size, affordability of the tag, and a healthy national population, chasing turkeys is an excellent way for folks to get into hunting.
Hunt to Eat is offering a wild turkey hunt for veterans in the panhandle of Idaho from May 14-16. Whether you’re an experienced hunter, new to hunting, or just new to turkeys, come join us! We’ll have experienced mentors on hand to teach you how to pattern your shotgun, locate and call birds, and teach you about turkey habit and conservation. Most importantly, we'll explore the outdoors together, build community, and enjoy great food.
This camp has been filled. To be added to our waitlist, please click the registration button below and select "yes" when prompted if you would like to be added to the list.


Hunt to Eat is hosting a veteran-based wild turkey Hunt Camp in northern Idaho. This hunt will take place on public lands featuring rolling golden hills, large roost trees, and views of mountain summits.

Although this camp is not all-inclusive, we will cover most of the logistical necessities. A place to pitch a tent and park your camp chair will be provided for you. Mentees are more than welcome to bring along their own personal firearm, camouflage, their favorite snacks, and any other items they would like for their hunt.

Hunt to Eat is an inclusive brand and community. We encourage BIPOC and LGBTQIA2+ folks to apply to be a mentee for this camp or inquire about becoming a mentor.
