2018 — August 30 through February 28, March 31, 2018
2019 — August 30 through February 28, March 31, 2019



This proposal would align daily bag limits with other species tags where the daily bag limit equals the number of tags legally possessed.

Proposal: The Department proposes to increase the daily bag limit from 1 to 2 turkeys per day.

The daily bag limit is one two bearded turkey per day in spring. In fall, the daily bag limit is equal to the number of tags possessed. and one turkey (either sex) per day in the fall, except in Units 1, 2, 3, and 5 where 5 turkeys (either sex) may be taken in a day during fall seasons.
