Turkey season is finally here

April 18, 2013

This weekend is the start of the youth turkey season in the southeast region. Area youth can go after a bird on Saturday and Sunday before the regular season starts on Monday.
Kids younger than 18 can hunt, but must be accompanied by an adult older than 18. For all regulations concerning youth turkey season, go to www.odwc.state.ok.us.
