Turkey Hunting Season

Ohio’s Turkey season begins Oct. 8 — Get Ready Now!

COLUMBUS – Ohio’s hunters have the opportunity to pursue wild turkeys during a seven-week season from Oct. 8, through Nov. 27. Gobblers and hens are legal game during the fall wild turkey season.

Turkey Hunting Season

Ohio’s Turkey Hunting Season is set to open on October 8, 2016.

Fifty-six Ohio counties are open for fall turkey hunting. Only one turkey of either sex may be harvested during the entire fall season, and a valid hunting license and fall turkey hunting permit are required. Hours are 30 minutes before sunrise to sunset. Shotguns using shot, as well as crossbows and longbows, are permitted. Hunting turkeys over bait is prohibited, and turkeys must be checked by 11:30 p.m. on the day the bird is harvested.

A tagging procedure administered by the ODNR Division of Wildlife requires hunters to make their own game tag to attach to a turkey. Game tags can be made of any material (cardboard, plastic, paper, etc.) as long as it contains the hunter’s name, date, time, and county of the kill.
