Update: Turkey hunters to speak out against “no” fall hunts

Posted: Updated:
BIRMINGHAM, AL -

Wild turkeys will strut around freely in Alabama and without worry come fall all thanks to a recent decision.

The Board for the Alabama Department of Conservation and Natural Resources made the decision at a meeting last month and many hunters in Alabama are not happy with that decision.

In 2012, last fall season, hunters could legally hunt turkeys from Nov. 21-Jan. 1 in six counties: Clarke, Clay, Covington, Monroe, Randolph and Talladega.

Hunters say the Board should have reached out to them before making the decision because fall turkey hunting is as much as a tradition as the November Thanksgiving dinner.

According to numerous and consistent social media posts, many turkey hunters are planning to attend  and  address board members at the Saturday, May, 4th Conservation Advisory Board meeting.

The meeting will take place at the Joe Wheeler State Park at 9.a.m.  The registration for public comments will begin at 8.a.m.
