Juniors-only spring turkey over-the-counter nonpermit-tags can be purchased at any department office or license dealer. The cost is $10.
Hunters younger than 14 are required to complete a certified
hunter education course prior to the hunt.
The season for bearded turkey only runs from April 17 – May 21, opening a week earlier than the general season.
Open areas include Units 1, 3C, 4A, 4B, 5A, 5B, 6A, 6B (except Camp Navajo), 7, 8, 10, 12A, 23 and 27.
To assist new hunters, the Arizona Game and Fish Department will be hosting a turkey hunting camp to offer tips, a warm drink or just a place to brag about their hunt.
Additionally, a how-to hunt turkey will be hosted at a department office for all those that are interested.
Dates, times and locations will be announced on the department Web site at www.azgfd.gov/otc.
