About two weeks remain until the spring wild turkey season closes on May 31, and while license and harvest numbers were down early, they bounced back during seasons C and D.
Aaron Hebeisen, Backcountry Hunters and Anglers’ chapter coordinator and a turkey hunter, said he’s seen strong turkey numbers in the southeastern part of Minnesota. He said it doesn’t surprise him that harvest numbers are higher than normal for seasons C and D because of inclement weather during seasons A and B.
