Don't forget! If you're going to be hunting wild turkeys this year, you're going to need to use nonlead ammunition. This is a STATEWIDE requirement, and this regulation applies "to both to public and private lands (except for licensed game bird clubs), including all national forests, Bureau of Land Management properties and CDFW lands. Private landowners or anyone authorized to hunt on private land must also comply with these regulations."
California’s 2017 Spring wild turkey season opened March 25, and will close April 30. After that, the archery-only season will run from May 1-14.
