Game and Fish will mail the spring turkey licenses to successful applicants after they purchase a valid 2021-22 hunting license. All spring turkey hunters regardless of age must have a general game and habitat license in addition to their spring turkey license. Hunters age 16 and older also must have a small game license or a combination license. The 2021-22 licenses will be available for purchase beginning Monday, March 15.

Spring turkey hunters are encouraged to purchase their other necessary licenses well in advance so their turkey tag arrives before the season opener on Saturday, April 10.
