Youth Turkey Hunt Season this Weekend
The Spring Turkey hunt is still on as scheduled in Missouri and that includes the Spring Youth Season this weekend.
The Spring youth season is April 4th and 5th, beginning 30 minutes before sunrise to sunset. The Youth season is limited to hunters age 6 to 15. The state regulations limit the youth to one male turkey or turkey with a visible beard. Youths who take a turkey during the youth season may not harvest a second bird until April 27 as part of the regular season. This is because the bird taken during the youth season counts as the first bird for the first week of the regular season.
The youth will need to have a spring turkey hunting permit and will need to follow all of the regulations, including the check-in of your bird.
The regular Spring Turkey Season runs from April 20th to May 10th.
