LSON Foundation introduces student to hunting in January, harvests her first turkey this week

Written by Conor Harrison, Lone Star Outdoor News

The Lone Star Outdoor News Foundation hosted graduate wildlife biology student Liz Oaster on her first-ever deer hunt back in January.

Oaster ended up harvesting a great buck and a doe, and it seems she enjoyed hunting.

LSON received an email this morning from Oaster, who took her first turkey yesterday.

“Just wanted to let you know that you have created a monster … I am now a turkey slayer as well as a deer slayer,” she said. “I killed this 2-year-old tom yesterday morning about 7 miles south of Alpine. Thanks to you and your program, I am now definitely a hunter for life!”

Congrats, Liz.

This is just one of the success stories from the Lone Star Outdoor News Foundation, whose mission is to “create hunting and fishing opportunities, benefit youth education and support wildlife research and outdoor journalism.”

The LSON Foundation is a 501 (c) (3) charitable organization.
