In this episode of the Georgia Afield Hunting Podcast, we are talking with Georgia’s state turkey biologist Emily Rushton. Emily dives into the current state of our turkey population, recent research, and upcoming changes to Georgia’s turkey season. In a nutshell, what the DNR staff will be proposing to the DNR Board of Directors for the 2022 turkey season is:
- Reduce the turkey season bag limit from 3 to 2 birds
- Reduce the daily turkey bag limit to 1 bird
- Push back the turkey season start date one week on private land
- Push back the turkey season start date on public land to mid-April
