Southwest Colorado late youth turkey season Nov. 20-28

From the Colorado Division of Wildlife

-- Colorado reminds young hunters to take advantage of the special late turkey season in southwest Colorado Nov. 20 to 28.
 
The special fall season is open to all Colorado hunters under age 18, and a license can be purchased at any license agent or DOW office.

Youngsters who did not get a turkey during the regular fall season anywhere in the state can also use their original tag to go hunting again. Each hunter must be accompanied by a mentor who is 18 or older. The mentor cannot hunt and must have a Colorado Hunter Education Card.
 
The special season is open only in game management units 52, 54, 55, 60, 61, 62, 64, 65, 66, 67, 68, 70, 71, 72, 73, 74, 75, 76, 77, 78, 79, 82, 83, 411, 521, 551, 681, 682, 711, 741, 751 and 771.
 
Fall turkey hunting is a different experience. Hunters can take a bird of either sex, and turkeys traveling in flocks can be tracked on the ground. Turkeys are abundant in southwest Colorado where large expanses of public land allow hunters to enjoy a high-quality experience.
 
The season overlaps the last weekend of the big game rifle seasons, so the DOW strongly advises turkey hunters and their mentors to be visible to big game hunters by wearing brightly colored head coverings until big game season ends Nov. 21.
