State-by-State Turkey Forecasts from Game & Fish/Sportsman

Kennesaw, Ga. — If you’re a turkey hunter, you probably have questions.

Where are the best places to hunt in my state? How are local turkey populations faring this year? Have there been any changes in hunting seasons or regulations?

Readers will find those answers, plus much more, in the special state Turkey Forecasts appearing in spring issues of G&F/Sportsman titles.  In most of the magazine’s state editions across the country, readers can discover everything they need to know about finding gobblers in their area.

With spring turkey season right around the corner, we know our readers are looking for information,” said Editorial Director Ken Dunwoody. “Our job is to provide them with the details they need for a successful hunt. Our annual forecast, focused just on turkey hunting in their state, gives them updates they often can’t find anywhere else.

From Oregon to Florida, state editions of G&F/Sportsman will show readers the best places to find turkeys in their state, along with expert predictions for the spring season and a review of last season’s harvest. That’s valuable information for the magazines’ readers, 66% of whom are turkey hunters.
