Montana Spring Turkey Trot Licenses
The Spring male turkey hunting season begins April 14th.
Montana Department of Fish Wildlife and Parks reminds hunters that in some counties the deadline to apply for a permit is next Thursday March 8.
The FWP Commission also expanded some general turkey hunting areas in western Montana. Some Bitterroot residents are noticing that that there are quite a few of the birds in certain areas of the valley. It's the same in other areas of Montana.
Applicants must have a 2012 conservation license to apply and will find the spring turkey permit areas in FWP Regions 2, 3 and 4 listed on the application. It costs $5 to apply.
The resident and nonresident turkey permit applications are online at the FWP website. Go to the Hunting page, click Licenses and Permits, then click Applications.
