The Fat Lady Is Warming Up

Though many autumn turkey seasons are done in the Northeast where I’ve hunted them this fall, I’m still at it in New Hampshire where the bow-only opportunity on either-sex birds continues until Dec. 15. Wish me luck.
Here’s a three-fer of places where you can still down a turkey:
Virginia: How cool is it for a state to offer a variety of fall turkey seasons (into the New Year for the latest one), including a one-day hunt on Nov. 27, Thanksgiving Day? Two-turkey limit. Dogs: legal
Arkansas: Though the fall turkey gun season is done until spring down where SZ regular “Dirty” hunts, archery/crossbow opportunities run until February 28, 2009 in all zones. You heard right. In some ways it’s just getting started. An estimated 110,000 turkeys roost here.
Kansas: Staggered “Sunflower State” fall/winter turkey seasons run from 10/1-12/3; 12/15-31; and 1/5/09-1/31. You’ll need hunter ed. proof if born after July 1, 1957. Limit: one turkey permit, and three turkey game tags per hunter valid in Unit 2. Dogs are also legal. —Steve Hickoff
