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.

If planning to hunt on private land, you'll need permission from the landowner first.

There is a limit to turkey hunting: only male turkeys can be hunted and the season bag limit is three turkeys per hunter. 

Here are some turkey hunting safety precautions to study up on before going on the hunt:

The effort, organized by Bonnie Murphey of the Macon Tracks Club, supports only non-kill shelters and will also partially support the efforts of a local veterinarian who is providing “indigent care” to abused animals. 

The run is set for March 17 at 8 a.m. That'll be at Mount Zion Church on Rivoli Road.

100 percent of all proceeds go to the cause.
