Oklahomas bag limit of 3 spring turkeys didnt change.ROFLMAO - Thank God they don't listen to the NWTF Biologist or Missouri Biologist - Oklahoma Department of Wildlife Conservation - April 30, 2021
Rio Grande wild turkey populations have experienced declines in many parts of the subspecies’ range and are most evident in western Oklahoma.
ODWC biologists are recommending changes to spring hunting season dates and bag limits to help stem the decline and aid with population recovery.
A later opening date for spring hunting season benefits turkeys by allowing undisturbed breeding and egg laying during the crucial first two weeks in April.
A reduced statewide season bag will help maintain more breeding toms in the population.
We are seeking your comments and input on these proposed changes to wild turkey seasons in Oklahoma. The proposed changes would take effect for the 2021 fall wild turkey season and 2022 spring wild turkey season and, if approved, remain in effect for future years until further modified or revoked.
