Greenbo Lake State Resort Park is hosting its first-ever wild turkey hunts as part of a package deal on April 15-17 and again on April 22-24. The park includes 3,000 acres of wooded hills previously not open for turkey hunting.
Stephanie Poplin, group sales coordinator for the park, said she has already received reservations from hunters as far away as Alabama and Virginia. “We have a lot of turkeys out here,” she said.
Turkey hunting packages include two nights lodging, two breakfasts, two lunches and two dinners. Visitors may hunt for two of the three days during their stay. The cost is $150 a person based on double occupancy or $225 a person based on single occupancy. Taxes are extra.
Packages are available on a first-come, first-served basis. Participants must reserve one of the park’s 36 rooms as part of the package in order to hunt. Hunters may use shotguns, bows or crossbows as long as they stay well away from buildings at the park.
Hunters must possess a valid Kentucky annual hunting license and a spring turkey permit.
Greenbo Lake State Resort Park is located in northeastern Kentucky’s Greenup County, a few minutes north of Interstate 64. For more information, visit the park website at parks.ky.gov/parks/resortparks/greenbo-lake/default.aspx.
Interested hunters should call 1-800-325-0083 for reservations or email Stephanie Poplin at email@example.com.
