Afternoon turkeys: Should New York follow Pennsylvania’s lead?
I’ve hunted spring turkeys in both New York and Pennsylvania ever since there was a spring season. Up until 10 years ago, hunting hours in both states ended at noon and that was fine with me. Pounding the boonies in search of a gobbler from dawn till noon was about all I cared to do. Although New York still requires hunters to be out of the woods by noon, beginning May 15 Pennsylvania allows spring turkey hunting from one-half hour before sunup until one-half hour after sundown.
