Turkey hunting is growing in popularity and hunters here in Colorado will not want to miss out on the opportunity of a fall turkey hunt. Colorado Parks and Wildlife released all the details regarding turkey hunting with some things being changed this year.

First, the fall turkey application period has been shortened to allow for fall turkey licenses to be used for qualifying licenses for the secondary draw. The application period opened a few weeks ago on May 1st and will remain open until May 28th.

Spring limited license season opened back on April 10th and runs until May 31st.
