Turkey Hunting Permit Window Opening

While Thanksgiving dinner will appease most folks hungry for turkey, it will likely only wet the appetite of the state’s avid turkey hunters. While the hunt doesn’t open until next spring, Utah turkey hunters know the opening to apply for permits is nearing. “Turkey populations are doing really well in Utah,” shares DWR Upland Game Coordinator Jason Robinson. “That means more opportunities to view and hunt the birds.” Permits can be applied for started Wednesday, November 30th and will run through December 27th. The limited entry hunt will be held in April with 461 permits available for the northeastern region. If you’re not one of those lucky ones, don’t worry. The General Statewide Turkey hunt opens in May and those permits go on sale February 23rd. To apply for the limited use hunt, visit www.wildlife.utah.gov.
