A turkey permit or game tag is valid for one bearded turkey. In addition to turkey permits, all hunters must have a valid hunting license, unless exempt by law.
Any individual who has purchased a spring turkey permit is also eligible for one spring turkey game tag. Spring game tags are valid for Units 1, 2, 3, 5 and 6. Youth permits are valid statewide, including Unit 4.
Hunters who drew a Unit 4 (southwest Kansas) spring turkey permit earlier this year may also use their Unit 4 permit in adjacent Units 1, 2 and 5.
The 2017 Kansas spring turkey season will kick off with the youth and disabled season April 1- 11, followed by the archery season April 3-11, and regular firearm season April 12-May 31.
