Turkey Trap Strikeout
When was the first spring turkey season in Kansas?

A limited number of permits were issued through a lottery drawing for hunting in southcentral and southwest Kansas in 1974. Turkeys, native to Kansas before settlement, were virtually extirpated by the turn of the century. In the 1960s, wild birds trapped in Oklahoma and Texas were released, starting one of the most successful wildlife comeback stories in our history. Refer to the Turkey Information page for information on the 2010 spring turkey season.

When it comes to trapping for research, turkeys have a schedule of their own. Learn more about these frustrations in this video.
