Spring Gobbler Lottery Hunts


Spring gobbler season is a lottery only hunt. Lottery tickets are on sale during the month of March each year and lottery winners will be drawn 1 week prior to the opening of the season. 

Each winning ticket will award the hunter two (2) morning hunts from 0400 until 1200hrs. The hunter may bring a guest for calling, observation, etc; however, the guest may not possess or handle a firearm. 

Spring gobbler hunting areas are awarded in the random order the hunters are generated by the iSportsman Portal. Each hunter can select 2 mornings and either the same location for both hunts or 2 different locations.

Hunters are allowed to harvest 1 bearded turkey and their season is over once that bird is harvested. 

Spring gobbler hunters must proceed to the processing facility and provide biological samples as requested by the Wildlife Biologist. 

Specific questions should be directed to the Wildlife Biologist (757)952-5204.
