Put a turkey on your table this November

There’s more than one way to put a turkey on your table for Thanksgiving. Rather than head to the grocery store, some hunters plan to get their birds during the hunting season for wild turkey already underway in Idaho. In units 8, 10A, 11, 11A, 13, 14, 15, 16, & 18, the season runs from August 30 - December 31, 2020.

While turkey hunting is a great way to get out this November, there are many other outdoor activities to consider with the family. November is prime time to head outside for game, fish, or wildlife viewing too.
