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.
In 2003, Arizona offered their first Gould’s turkey hunting permit making it one of only two state's to find this sub-species.
These pins make fantastic reminders of memorable Arizona bird hunts.
