Iowa turkey seasons underway
Iowa’s youth-only turkey hunting season ends Sunday will be followed by four regular spring turkey seasons.
The first of Iowa’s four regular spring turkey seasons is April 17-20, second season is April 21-25, third season is April 26-May 2 and the fourth season is May 3-21.
An archery only license is good from April 17-May 21.
Hunters can purchase two spring turkey licenses with one license for Season 4.
Resident spring turkey licenses are statewide. Hunters participating in the youth-only season also can purchase a Season 4 license.
Shooting hours are one-half hour before sunrise to sunset.
Successful hunters are required to report their harvest by midnight of the day after it is tagged. The easiest way to report is to log on to www.iowadnr.gov. Other ways to report are by calling the phone number listed on the tag or by going through a license vendor. Write the harvest registration number on the harvest report tag.
Wear blaze orange when moving from one spot to another, and avoid wearing red, white, blue. These same colors are found in a turkey’s head.
