Youth Turkey Hunters across the state wanting to get back in the field may want to consider the MDC’s Managed hunts. Missouri turkey hunters age 11-15 can apply online through Monday for 2022 spring turkey managed hunts through the Missouri Department of Conservation (MDC) website at mdc.mo.gov/hunting-trapping/species/turkey/turkey-spring-managed-hunts.
Managed hunt details and application procedures are outlined on the webpage. Drawing results will be posted starting March 15.
The spring turkey hunting youth portion will be April 9 and 10 with the regular spring season running April 18 through May 8.
You can find detailed information on spring turkey hunting in the MDC 2022 Spring Turkey Hunting Regulations and Information booklet. That is available where permits are sold beginning in March.
