Wabbit Season? No, It’s Spring Turkey Season in Connecticut
Ah Springtime, the outdoors, and so many activities are calling you. Yesterday I wrote about how the State is trying to get more Connecticut residents outdoors to take advantage of our abundant natural resources by hosting hosting a series of 'Learn how to fish' events over the next few months, and there's one of those events at Southford Falls in Southbury tomorrow, Wednesday, April 27, 2021. That's a great activity if you're into fishing and being around the water, but, for our hunting sportspeople, another outdoor sport is opening up for the Spring season here in Connecticut tomorrow: Wild Turkey Hunting Season.
Connecticut's Spring 2021 Wild Turkey Hunting Season starts Wednesday, April 28, 2021, and it runs for a month, until May 29, 2021. Wild Turkey Hunting is legal in Connecticut on State Land, Private Land, and Landowner. There are a few basic rules to follow: There is a 5 bearded bird limit, and the hunting hours are 1/2 hour before sunrise to sunset. CT residents must have multiple licenses to legally hunt Wild Turkey: A firearms hunting license, small game or deer archery permit, and, a resident game bird conservation stamp, which goes for $28. Legal weaponry for hunting are 20 Gauge or larger shotguns, long, recurved, compound bows, or crossbows.
Obviously there is a lot of fine print that you should read through: Tagging, reporting, use of decoys, landowner permits, etc. You can read it all at your leisure, as you wait for that fat 20 pound Tom to waddle by, by clicking HERE.
