Ohio hunters bag 3,000 wild turkeys during launch of spring hunting season

OHIO (WOIO) - April 22 was not a good day to be a wild turkey in central and southern Ohio.

Nearly 3,000 birds were bagged by hunters on Monday during the launch of the 2019 spring hunting season.

However, it’s not purely for sport--the vast majority of the turkeys will be harvested by the hunters.

  • Ohio’s spring wild turkey season is divided into two zones: a south zone, which is open from Monday, April 22 to Sunday, May 19, and a northeast zone, which is open from Monday, April 29 to Sunday, May 26.
  • Hunters are required to have a hunting license and a spring turkey hunting permit. The spring season bag limit is two bearded turkeys. Hunters can harvest one bearded turkey per day.
