Season Dates: April 16, 2016 – May 8, 2016
Kentucky’s Spring Turkey Season is in full swing with hunters out to get their two bird bag limit! All hunters know they are required to call in and report a harvested bird when they get it, but what about a banded bird? Here at National Band & Tag we encourage any hunter who lands a banded turkey to call the number on the band and report it to help researchers with their studies! Below is an example of a turkey with our Rivet Bands, who is being used by biologists to collect data on turkey’s brooding habits and population.
Kentucky’s Bag Limits for the 2016 Spring Season are:
“A hunter may take a male turkey or a turkey with a visible beard. No more than one (1) bird may be taken per day. No more than two (2) birds may be taken per spring season. Any combination of male turkeys, or female turkeys with visible beards, may be included in this two-bird season limit.”
Good luck to everyone out there this season! Comment below with pictures of your prized gobblers and any banded turkeys as well!
