Tennessee readying for spring turkey hunting

Posted: Updated:

NASHVILLE (AP) - Tennessee's Young Sportsman Hunt will kick off the 2014 spring hunting season for wild turkeys.

The hunt will take place March 22 and 23 with the statewide season opening the following weekend on March 29 and running through May 11.

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.
