MISSOURI VALLEY, Iowa (AP) - The DeSoto National Wildlife Refuge is hosting a special turkey hunt this month.

The hunt will take place Saturday and Sunday. Other activities such as mushroom hunting will be prohibited during the turkey hunt to ensure public safety.

The daily entrance fee for private vehicles is $3. Permits are available at pay stations near the entrances or at the Visitor Center. The charge for commercial vans and buses is $20, or $30 if 21 or more people are aboard.
