Ohio Insider: Conducting an autopsy of the state’s 2024 spring turkey season

Now that the 2024 spring turkey season is in the books, I conducted my annual autopsy of the season with Ohio DNR Division of Wildlife game biologist Mark Wiley.
For the record, Ohio’s hunters in the South and Northeast zones bagged 15,535 birds, which nearly matches the 15,673 spring gobblers harvested in 2023. This spring’s turkey harvest also nearly matched what Wiley and his colleagues thought would happen before the season began.
