Turkey Season Opens Saturday

Turkey Season Opens Saturday

The turkey hunting season opens Saturday, March 24, a Georgia Department of Natural Resources news release says.

To go turkey hunting, you'll need a valid hunting license and big game license to legally hunt turkeys in Georgia. If you're on a Wildlife Management Area, you'll also need a WMA license. You can buy licenses online, at a retail license vendor or by phone at 1-800-366-2661.
