Harvest your Thanksgiving turkey this October

INDIANA – Now is the time to bring home your family’s Thanksgiving turkey. The fall archery wild turkey season is open in all Indiana counties from Oct. 1–31. Many counties also offer a fall firearms wild turkey season from Oct. 20–31.

Purchase your fall wild turkey license and game bird habitat stamp online or at participating retailers. Avoid delaying your season because of long lines or technical difficulties – buy your license now.

The bag and possession limit for the fall seasons is one bird of either sex, regardless of hunting equipment used or what portion of the season you will be hunting.

For a full list of wild turkey regulations, pick up a copy of the Indiana Hunting & Trapping Guide from our Fish & Wildlife areas, or find regulations online. Visit Indiana’s Where to Hunt map to find possible hunting opportunities around the state.

Turkey hunting in the fall is also a great time to prepare for deer season by scouting areas where you can hunt both game species.
