Special Turkey Season for Mobility Impaired and youth

Thread starter #1
SPECIAL YOUTH TURKEY SEASON OPENS WEEKEND BEFORE STATEWIDE SEASON – This Season Available on Private Lands Only



For the first time in Georgia, youth and mobility-impaired hunters will have a chance to turkey hunt the weekend before the statewide turkey season opens. This special opportunity season is March 15-16, 2014.



“I am sure that many a young hunter is excited about this opportunity as it gives them a chance to get in the woods before they open to everyone the following weekend,” said John Bowers, chief of the Game Management Section. “But, we want hunters to be sure to note that this special opportunity hunt is only available on private lands.”



This weekend hunt opportunity is available only for youth 16 years of age and younger or hunters that are mobility impaired (i.e. confined to a wheelchair, hemiplegia, monoplegia, paraplegia, or single-leg amputation above the knee). Youth hunters must be accompanied by an adult (18 years or older) who may call for turkey, but may not take or attempt to take a turkey.
