This weekend marks the start of youth season for spring turkey hunting.
Hunters must be between the ages of 6-15 years old to participate in this portion of the season.
The youth segment of turkey season runs April 7-8. The regular portion of the season runs from April 16 to May 6.
To find the rules and regulations you can go to the Missouri Department of Conservation website.
The Missouri Department of Conservation began its youth-only season for turkey hunting In 2001, with a goal in mind of giving kids a chance to get a bird before anyone else gets a crack during regular season.
If you have any questions regarding permits or methods, call the Missouri Department of Conservation.
