2008 turkey hunting range and youth season
The Indiana spring hunting range will remain the same as in 2007 with 91 of 92 counties open to spring turkey hunting. Henry is now the only county closed during the spring turkey season. The DNR released turkeys in Henry County in 2004, but there were several early mortalities among the released birds. "The Henry County closure will allow additional time for these turkey flocks to grow," Backs said.
The youth turkey hunting weekend will be April 19 and 20. The regular spring season runs from April 23 to May 11.
During the youth wild turkey weekend, hunters 15 years old or younger can take a bearded or male wild turkey. The youth must be accompanied by an adult of at least 18 years of age.
The youth hunter may use any legal shotgun, bow and arrow, or crossbow. The adult accompanying the youth hunter must not possess a firearm, bow and arrow, or crossbow while in the field, and does not need to possess a turkey hunting license. A youth hunter may take only one bearded or male wild turkey during all spring seasons. The youth must be properly licensed to take a wild turkey and comply with all tagging and check-in requirements.
