Turkey hunting season dates and regulations vary widely from state to state, which can get a bit confusing if you are planning your spring trips.
Thankfully, the National Wild Turkey Federation has a terrific state-by-state roundup of regulations and season dates, along with a few tips from famed turkey hunter Jeff Budz. He has completed more than 100 “Grand Slam” hunting events and the 49-state “Super Slam,” harvesting a gobbler in every state in the country except Alaska, which doesn’t have a wild turkey season.
Like anything else related to hunting, it’s important to plan ahead, and if you’re new to the sport, to find people to get tips and information from. Online tips like those found on such sites as bonecollector.com and gohunt.com are very helpful, but there’s no substitute for local knowledge gained from spending years hunting in a particular area.
Among the states listed in the NWTF’s roundup are Alabama, Mississippi, Arkansas and Idaho, all states where PotlatchDeltic sells recreational properties. Call one of the experts in our Preferred Broker Network to talk about getting your own hunting home base in 2021.
