Turkey hunters across New Hampshire are preparing for what biologists expect to be a good harvest during the spring season.

The regular spring turkey season encompasses the month of May.

The 2019 youth turkey hunt will take place on Saturday and Sunday, April 27-28.

Last year during youth turkey hunting weekend, young hunters took 339 turkeys or 8.1% of the total spring season’s harvest.

To participate in the youth weekend, hunters must be age 15 or younger and be accompanied by a properly licensed adult age 18 or older. The adult may not carry a firearm or bow.

Youth hunters do not need a hunting license, but they must have a valid turkey permit which costs $16 for residents and $31 for nonresidents.
