Spring Turkey Hunting Permit

Limits

Two male turkeys or turkeys with a visible beard.

Notes

Only one turkey may be taken during the first week of the season. If you do not take one during the first week, then you may take two during the second or third weeks of the season, but you may not take them both on the same day.

Any hunter who kills or injures a turkey must make a reasonable effort to retrieve and include it in his or her season limit, but this does not authorize trespass.

It is a violation to wantonly leave, abandon, or waste commonly edible portions of game.

Anyone using a turkey call to assist another hunter must be properly licensed with either a filled or unfilled spring turkey hunting permit.
