Can you speak like a turkey?

Bart Jacob memorial turkey calling contest is Saturday

Saturday, April 16 at 10 a.m.—CASTLETON—If you are young and can use a turkey call to cluck, yelp, purr, or do the Kee-Kee Run, you will have a chance to show off your turkey calling skills at the annual Bart Jacob Memorial Youth Turkey Calling Contest in Castleton on Saturday, April 16. 

Oxbow Mountain 4-H Shooting Sports will host the youth turkey calling competition to honor the memory of the late Bart Jacobs, a man who manufactured his own high quality turkey calls in Pawlet and always cared about passing hunting traditions on to young people. 

The event begins at 10 a.m. at the Kehoe Conservation Camp, 636 Point of Pines Road, in Castleton. 

Calling competition will be for prizes in age groups 0-7, 8-10, 11-13, and 14-18.  

Contestants must be registered by April 8.
