RULE 002.00.11-014. Amendments for the 2011-2012 Wild Turkey seasons

Committee: Regulations

Date: November 17, 2011

Explanation:

The 2012 turkey season proposals were presented to the Regulations Committee at the September meeting for consideration. The turkey team met on October 11, 2011 and has proposed to reduce the season length 2 days. The new recommendations are as follows:

* Special Youth Turkey Hunt o April 7-8, 2012 in all open turkey zones, limit two bearded turkeys, no more than one jake.

* Turkey Zones 1, 2, 3, 4B, 5, 5B, 6, 7, 7A, 8,9,10 and 17

o April 14-April 29, 2012, limit two bearded turkeys, no jakes allowed except youth hunters may harvest one jake.

* Turkey Zones 4, 4A, 5A and 9A

o April 14-April 24, 2012, limit one bearded turkey, no jakes allowed except youth hunters may harvest one jake.

* Turkey Zone 1A is closed.

* No more than one turkey may be taken per day, and no more than two turkeys may be taken in any combination of open turkey zones. Youth may only take one jake during the season, either during the youth hunt or statewide hunt. Wildlife Management Area and National Wildlife Refuge recommended seasons and bag limits have been adjusted to comply with these recommendations.

Proposed recommended changes that are new for this season were also presented as follows:

* Eliminate the permit requirement for the youth turkey hunt on Bayou Meto, Beryl Anthony Lower Ouachita, Scott Henderson Gulf Mountain, and Trusten Holder WMAs. The hunts would be open to youth hunters without the need for applying and paying for a permit.

* Eliminate the preference point system for permit-based turkey hunts on Wildlife Management Areas. The preference point system has already been eliminated for the deer and alligator permit-based hunts.

* Creation of a walk-in only turkey hunting area on Petit Jean WMA.
