Pennsylvania Spring Gobbler Season

PA Spring Turkey 2016 - 2017 Season Hunting Dates

Spring gobbler
This spring gobbler was taken on the last Saturday of the 2008 pa spring turkey season. After countless hours of trying to harvest a turkey, I finally got this 19.5lb, 3/4in spurs and 9in bearded tom.

View 2003 - 2008 wild turkey harvest maps at the Pennsylvania Game Commission website. These maps allow you to see how many spring gobblers and how many fall turkeys were taken per wmu, along with a total count of turkey taken over both seasons per unit and for the state.
