The permit and tags will be valid for both the Youth Turkey Hunt date (next Saturday, April 28) and the regular spring turkey hunting season. The youth permit and tags are not valid for fall turkey hunting. Four Berkshire County sportsmen’s clubs are participating in the Youth Turkey Hunt program; Stockbridge, Lee, Cheshire and East Mountain in Williamstown..
Youth turkey hunters aged 12-17 years old who successfully completed the Youth Turkey Hunt Program in a previous year and plan to hunt on April 28 must have obtained and submitted a Past Participant Application. The daily bag limit is 1 bird a day for both the Youth Turkey Hunt date and the duration of the spring turkey hunting season. All other turkey hunting regulations apply to young turkey hunters.
