Arizona is home to several turkey sub-species & they sometimes inner bread. This results in hybrid birds that do not have distinct markings to any particular sub-species. If you bag a bird & are unsure of the variety or if you aren't chasing a specific sub-species, our Wild turkey pins make a great catch-all & will work for any of them.
Each year has a unique color combination.
The text "Successful Hunter - Wild Turkey" is printed in orange on the top and bottom arc.
Regulated turkey hunting in Arizona was first established
through legislature in 1913 that classified the Wild turkey as big game
& set a bag limit of three birds to be taken between October 1 and
December 15. Hunting pressure gradually increased, and hunting
regulations steadily became more stringent & eventually,a hunter
had to win a draw to hunt in the state.
The first spring gobbler hunt was authorized in 1965. Today, fall
hunting and spring hunting are by permit-only. In the spring, the number
of gobblers taken is equal to or greater than the fall harvest.
These pins make fantastic reminders of memorable Arizona bird hunts.
