Delaware Dept. of Natural Resources & Environmental Control-- Prior to the opening of the regular 2010 spring turkey season, youth ages 10-15 and non-ambulatory disabled hunters will have a special one-day hunt opportunity on April 3 on private lands statewide only.
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. the day of the hunt at an authorized turkey check station.

The regular spring turkey hunting season opens April 10 and runs through April 30.
