Dates Announced for Alabama Youth Turkey Hunting Days

Alabama - -(OutDoorWire.com)- The Alabama Department of Conservation and Natural Resources’ (ADCNR) Wildlife and Freshwater Fisheries Division (WFF) has designated March 14 – 15 as this year’s Special Youth Turkey Hunting Days. The 2009 spring turkey season runs from March 16 to April 30 for most counties in the state.

During the Special Youth Turkey Hunting Days, youth under age 16 may hunt turkey when accompanied by a licensed non-hunting adult age 25 or older, or the parent of the youth hunter. Regular turkey season shooting hours, bag limits, legal arms and ammunitions apply to the special days.

ADCNR Commissioner M. Barnett Lawley thinks the two select hunting days give young people a chance to learn and grow as hunters. “Hunting under the supervision of an experienced adult hunter is one of the best ways young hunters can acquire the necessary skills to become a good hunter,” said Lawley. “Our annual designated youth hunting days for deer, dove, waterfowl, and turkey are perfect opportunities for these skills to be passed on.”

Many of the state’s Wildlife Management Areas (WMAs) will hold one-day youth turkey hunts on March 14. Those WMAs include: Barbour, Blue Spring, Cahaba River, Choccolocco, Geneva State Forest, Demopolis, Frank W. & Rob M. Boykin, Hollins, James D. Martin-Skyline, Kinterbish, Lowndes, Mobile-Tensaw Delta and W.L. Holland, Mulberry Fork, Oakmulgee, Perdido River, Sam R. Murphy, Scotch, and Upper Delta (zones A and B).

Additional one-day youth turkey hunts will be held March 28 at Black Warrior (zones A and B) and Lauderdale WMAs. Maps and information about the Wildlife Management Areas are on the Department’s Web site at www.outdooralabama.com.

For more information about youth hunts, contact the WFF Wildlife Section at (334) 242-3469 or any WFF District Office.

The Alabama Department of Conservation and Natural Resources promotes wise stewardship, management and enjoyment of Alabama’s natural resources through five divisions: Marine Police, Marine Resources,State Lands, State Parks, and Wildlife and Freshwater Fisheries.
