Hunters ages 6-16 are allowed to harvest one bearded turkey which counts toward statewide bag limit unless taken on a Wildlife Management Area where turkeys are designated as bonus birds. Multiple youths may be accompanied by a non-hunting adult, 21 or older, who must remain in a position to take immediate control of the hunting device. The adult is not required to have a license.

Legal hunting equipment includes shotguns using ammunition loaded with No. 4 shot or smaller.
