Vermont: Spring Turkey Hunting Season
Last year a record 6,107 turkeys were harvested in VT. But that’s nothing special. Spring turkey harvest records in nine of last 12 years have been topped. VT was the first New England state to reintroduce turkey, releasing 31 birds from the state of New York back in 1969 and 1970. Estimates put the turkey population at 55,000. The regular season runs from May 1 to 31 and hunters may take two bearded turkeys.
