Young hunters across the state will take to the woods this weekend in the first official turkey hunt of the year. Kids between the ages of six and 15 can hunt from half an hour before sunrise until sunset. They’re permitted to bag one male turkey or turkey with a visible beard. If they do take a turkey during the youth season, they’re not permitted to harvest a second bird until April 22nd. The youth hunt will be followed by the regular turkey season which begins next weekend. The regular season dates for this year are April 15th through May 5th. The fall firearms season for turkey will be held in October.
