Turkey Talk with Tyler Corrigan

Article written by: Judy Ott

Turkey season starts April 28th at daylight and ends on May 12th. You can hunt from daylight until noon. This time limits disturbing turkeys on nests. Research shows there are an average of 10-12 eggs on each nest. Shotguns, archery equipment can be used but no rifles. Please shoot your turkey in the head. I talked with Tyler Corrigan who works at Longs Outpost in Martinsburg. Corrigan also stressed if you get a turkey do not carry it out of the woods exposed. Another hunter may think it is a live turkey and shoot at you. He recommends using an orange bag of some sort or putting it in your coat.

Some hunters believe you must be in camouflage and not have any orange on which is lawful. However, many turkey hunters including Corrigan believe you should wear orange. It has not been proven that turkey can see the orange and it is much safer for the hunter. If you are wearing all camouflage or not it is best to sit in front of a large tree for added protection.

You should also not walk in the woods calling turkeys but rather sit in one place and call them into you. Other hunters may think it is a turkey walking around.

Beginning on May 14th thru May 31st you can hunt all day. Turkeys must have a visible beard. Take note some hens have a beard, and this is legal to shoot. The limit is 1 per day and 2 per season. License are on sale now. Hunting license for 2018 starts the last day of the 1st day of July.
