Regional Proposals
Clearwater Region 2

Fall Turkey:

Turkey populations in the Clearwater Region are robust. Turkeys create conflicts on agricultural areas and other private property. Furthermore, this proposal would simplify regulations and match proposed Panhandle seasons. Additional harvest opportunity would allow landowners increased flexibility to address turkey depredation issues.

Proposal: The Department proposes to eliminate the split in fall seasons in units (8, 8A, 10A, 11, 11A, 13, 14, 15, 16, and 18), and remove limitation to hunt only on private lands. Currently there is a split in seasons between October 10 and November 20.
This is a 42-day increase in the fall season.

September 15 1, 2018 through October 9 December 31, 2018 and September 15 1, 2019 through October 9 December 31, 2019. General Fall Hunt in Game Management Units 8, 8A, 10, 10A, 11, 11A, 12,13, 14, 15, 16, and 16A, 17, 18, 19, 20.

November 21, 2016 through December 31, 2016 and November 21, 2017 through December 31, 2017. General Fall Hunt in Game Management Units 8, 8A, 10A, 11, 11A, 13, 14, 15, 16, and 18. This hunt is open on private lands only. For the purpose of this hunt, “private lands” do not include corporate timberlands.

 
 

Fall Turkey:

This proposal would align the opening day for fall turkey hunting with proposed changes to seasons in the Panhandle and Clearwater regions.

Proposal: The Department proposes to move the opening day for the fall general season from September 15 to September 1 in units 10, 12, 16A, 17, 19, and 20.
This is a 14-day increase in the fall season.

September 151, 2018 through October 9, 2018 and September 15 1, 2019 through October 9, 2019. General Fall Hunt in Game Management Units 8, 8A, 10, 10A, 11, 11A, 12, 13, 14, 15, 16, 16A, 17, 18, 19, and 20.
