Thanksgiving is the perfect time for people to be thinking about turkeys. If you have an interest in harvesting your own locally sourced turkey, consider applying for an opportunity to hunt turkeys in Utah next spring. The application period for the spring 2023 limited-entry turkey hunt opens on December 13th. To be included in the permit drawing, you must submit your application before 11 p.m. on December 27th. You can apply on the Utah Division of Wildlife Resources website or over the phone by calling the nearest DWR regional office. The results of the drawing will be released no later than January 5th, 2023. There will only be 200 permits for the Northeastern region. If you do not get a limited-entry permit the general statewide turkey hunt happens in May and permits are sold over the counter or online starting at 8am on March 2nd. The general turkey season will be held from May 1st through the 31st, and the youth turkey hunt will run from April 28th through the 30th.
