When I apply for a controlled hunt, do I have to have a hunting license first? Do I get my license fee back if I don't draw the hunt I want?
A hunting license is required for anyone applying for a controlled hunt. Once you buy the license, you are the proud owner regardless of your luck in the draw.
If I harvest two turkeys in the spring, can I harvest a turkey in the fall?
Yes, but it will have to be in a controlled hunt. A person is allowed to purchase three turkey tags a year. They are the spring general season tag or a spring controlled-hunt tag, a late spring/fall tag, and a fall controlled-hunt tag. If a person uses their spring general season tag or spring controlled-hunt tag and their late spring/fall tag to harvest birds in the spring, the only hunt they are eligible for in the fall is the controlled hunt.
