Idaho’s turkey hunting remains popular, safety urged

April 15 marks the opening day of Idaho’s spring general turkey hunting season, and Idaho Fish and Game statistics indicate turkey hunting remains a popular sport.

This popularity means there are likely camouflaged hunters pursuing turkey in the hills, and Fish and Game encourages hunters to be extra careful this spring. Some hunters wear a blaze orange garment when walking to or from their calling spots, and even attach orange flagging to their harvested bird when carrying it to their vehicle.

Additional hunting information and safety tips are found on the Fish and Game website: http://fishandgame.idaho.gov/public/hunt/?getPage=131.
