spring turkey lottery

Recommended Posts

Can somebody clear something up for me? The last 2 or 3 years I've received my second choice date. This year I thought I was in line to receive my 1st choice and did'nt even choose a 2nd date. Checked today and not only did I not get chosen, I'm back to a preferance level 1. Does receiving a 2nd choice date count against my level the following year?

By getting the second choice, you are giving up your preference points. If instead, you would get a surplus license then you would not lose your preference points. If you're interested, you could still buy an archery tag. They are avaiable over the counter and are good for the last two seasons.

I think I read in the regs that you can only buy an archery license in areas that issue more tha 50 permits per season. Am I remembering correctly?

GFNER you have hit the nail on the head. By accepting your second choice you chose a lottery drawn tag and forfeited your preference points. If you're trying to get a more selective poermit choice than you need to pass on second options until you get drawn.

Chucker you are correct. Archery tags are good for the entire final two seasons (all 14 days) and you can choose any permit area that gives more than 50 permits per time period. Thats almost 80% of the permit areas. You can also purchase a surplus tag for shotgun hunting and that doesn't count against your preference points either.

    • Tomorrow is my day to shut everything down, turn water off and say good by tell  next May, boy that hurts!    
    • First problem: work.  Had something come up last minute on Tuesday that required I come in Wednesday.  Finally out and ready to get some rest before hitting it for 4 days instead of 5, but I’m here!   Birds have been disappearing this week on the strong winds but there are still pockets and presumably more on the border areas/ice line.  Nice weather predicted for tomorrow and a good bunch of birds were scouted today.  We’ll see what happens.  I hear we’re in for a big blow this weekend.
    • Well may be next year I'll try and creep by!  Depending who wins in Midterms and if we are still talking to each other then!! 😋
    • Anyone care to help out on this topic?
    • Blue Jays don't chew holes in my soffit But I only have a couple and they don't seem to bother the other birds.   One reason might be that they are too big to sit on the perches on the feeders, so they get to scratch for spillage.  
    • Yeah, of that deer farm and the ag boys who allegedly supervise them.  Or maybe we will get the story of how it has been around for many decades and nobody noticed it until now...
    • Seeing good numbers of birds so far this year.  
    • I went up north to our seasonal spot this past weekend and winterized the camper. 😥   We also ended up moving it to a different spot in the campground that is larger and more private and has a deck! I already can't wait for next years camping season! Still waiting for a visit from @leech~~ too. 😉   I might still go up again this fall if the weather ever warms up but this Saturday looks like it will be cold again up there. 35 degrees and windy is the forecast. We can still use our camper but there is no water in the campground so it is not conducive for bringing the wife. If we would still get a warmer weekend (above freezing at night) they will turn the water on in the shower houses at least so we could have a bathroom.
    • That's his story and he is sticking to it.
