-- Prior to the opening of the regular 2011 spring turkey season, youth ages 10 to 15 and non-ambulatory disabled hunters will have a special one-day hunt opportunity on April 2 on private lands statewide.
Hunters under the age of 13 are not required to have taken the Delaware Turkey Hunter Safety Class to hunt on this special day.
Young hunters must be accompanied by an adult age 21 or older who is licensed to hunt in Delaware, and who has taken a Delaware-approved turkey hunter safety class. Adult companions may not possess a firearm during the hunt.
Hunters aged 13, 14 and 15 must have a valid Delaware junior hunting license and must have completed a hunter education course and a Delaware-approved turkey hunter safety class.
As with the regular turkey hunting season, hunting hours are a half-hour before sunrise until 1 p.m. Bag limit is one bearded bird per year, and all birds taken must be checked by 2:30 p.m. on the day of the hunt at an authorized turkey check station.
The regular spring turkey hunting season runs April 9 through May 7. For more information, contact Ken Reynolds, Wildlife Section, (302)735-3600.
