-- The NJDEP Division of Fish and Wildlife reminds hunters that the spring wild turkey season opens April 23 and runs for five weeks.
Youth hunters will get the first chance to harvest a bird during the Youth Turkey Hunting Day April 21.
Youth hunters with a Youth License who have obtained a turkey permit may begin their spring turkey season on this day prior to the opening of the regular season.
Youth hunters are also guaranteed a permit for the area of their choice.
Permits for most areas and periods remain available and can be purchased at license agents and online.
