Remaining spring turkey permits still available

Remaining permits for the 2014 spring turkey hunting season will be sold on a first-come, firstserved basis, beginning Monday.

Designated zones will be sold each day, starting at 10 a.m. Sales will continue through midnight or until all permits for that zone or time period are sold out.

The spring 2014 turkey hunting season runs from April 16 through May 27, with the youth hunt being held April 12-13. The season is divided into six time periods, each running from Wednesday through the following Tuesday.

In total, 237,765 permits were available for the spring 2014 tur- key season, with 101,872 permits remaining for sale. The following zones have leftover permits, and the scheduled sales dates are as follows:

Zone 1 – March 17; Zone 2 – March 18; Zone 3 – March 19; Zone 4 – March 20; and Zones 5, 6 and 7 – March 21.

Beginning March 22, any remaining permits will be available for purchase until the zone or time period is sold out or until the season ends.

Customers may purchase one permit per day. Residents and nonresidents will have equal opportunity to purchase these leftover permits. It is important to note that purchasing leftover permits will not affect preference status for future spring or fall turkey permit drawings.

All hunters will also be required to pay the spring turkey license and stamp fees, unless they have previously purchased the 2014 license and stamp, or are a 2014 Conservation Patron License holder.

Hunters interested in purchasing a leftover turkey permit should check the turkey zone map [PDF] to verify where they want to hunt and then check the spring turkey leftover permit availability site to see if permits are available for the period and zone they wish to hunt. The map and permit numbers are available on the Department of Natural Resources website at dnr. (keyword “turkey”). Hunters may also reach the DNR Call Center at 1-888-936-7463.

A limited number of disabled-only turkey permits for state park areas are available as well.
