The permit drawing application deadline is approaching for two

April 2-3. DFG will accept online applications for both hunts
through March 7.

A total of 15 apprentice hunters will be drawn for the Apprentice
Spring Turkey Hunt and 15 general public hunters will be drawn for
the General Spring Turkey Hunt. Each successfully drawn applicant
may be accompanied by one other hunter. Please note that both
