Turkey Hunting Frequently Asked Questions 

< Back to Turkey Hunting

Does AGFC stock turkeys on private lands?
Yes we do stock a few turkeys on private land. Call our turkey program coordinator, 501-223-6359. If the land sounds like it has potential, the coordinator will send an official stocking request form to gather data. Upon return of the form, the site will be evaluated through aerial maps and field visits. The site will be recommended for stocking or not stocking based on criteria on the rating form. If approved, the site will be put on a stocking list and will be stocked as birds become available.
When is the drawing for the spring turkey permit hunt?
The first drawing and notification take place in early February. The second drawing and notification take place in late February and permits are mailed in March.
I failed to submit a turkey permit application. Will there be some for sale if any are left?
We sell leftover deer permits, but we do not sell leftover turkey permits.
