Ohio’s wild turkey kill is up as spring season nears its end

A good sign for 2023 harvest numbers in Ohio as they compare to the three-year average is that they are higher in 2023 despite two of the previous three years including a two-bird bag limit. The bag limit was decreased to one bird per hunter, per season in 2022 in response to the declining turkey population. (Stock photo courtesy of the Iowa DNR)

As turkey season is winding down around Ohio, harvest numbers compared to last year are witnessing a bit of an uptick.
Harvest numbers supplied by the ODNR Division of Wildlife (DOW) through May 14 showed Ohio’s cadre of hunters had killed 14,279 birds. That compares to the 10,734 turkeys harvested during the same time period in 2022. The three-year average for that time frame is 13,353.
