Turkey caliber?

A friend and I are in a argument. I say no, but he says it doesn't say you can't in the regs. Can you hunt turkey with a .22 LR?

Answer: 

You are correct.  Turkey can not lawfully be hunted with a .22 LR.  On page 18 of the Upland Game, Furbearer and Turkey Regulation Brochure it lists  some of the rules that apply to the hunting of upland game birds.  Turkeys are classified as an upland game bird.  The only firearm that is allowed for use in the taking of turkey is a shotgun using shells not exceeding 3 1/2 inches maximum length.
