Fall Turkey Season Changes Move Forward



The Pennsylvania Board of Game Commissioners recently gave preliminary approval to fall turkey seasons for 2017 and spring gobbler dates for 2018.

The board preliminarily approved a conservative, midweek fall turkey season in Wildlife Management Unit 5B, which long has been closed to fall-turkey hunting.

The board also gave preliminary approval to reducing the length of the fall season in three Wildlife Management Units – WMUs 4A, 4B and 4E. Those WMUs all have shown indications of declining turkey population trends.
