Youth and Physically Challenged Turkey Hunt
For the first time in Georgia's history, the state will open the turkey season one week in advance for youth 16 years of age or younger, and for those who suffer from mobility issues. The special hunts are permitted for March 15-16 on private land only. Youth hunters must be accompanied by an adult, at least 18 years of age who may do the calling but cannot take a shot. Hunter under the age of 16 will not be required to have a license however the adult who accompanies them must have a license and big game permit unless they are hunting on land they they themselves own. Mobility challenged hunters may be confined to a wheelchair, have hemiplegia, monoplegia or paraplegia, or may be single leg (above the knee) amputees.
