Concord, NH – The Granite State’s spring turkey hunt remains slated to open on May 1, and run through May 31, with the youth turkey hunt taking place the preceding weekend, Saturday, April 25, and Sunday, April 26. However, this is subject to change based on the statewide efforts to control the spread of the COVID-19 virus.
Because of this public health emergency, many licensing agents may be closed, have limited hours, or be experiencing other restrictions. The Department is currently working on potential alternative turkey registration procedures and will provide updates to the public when available.
A New Hampshire turkey license is required for hunters of all ages ($16 for state residents and $31 for nonresidents). Hunters age 16 and older must hold either a current New Hampshire hunting or archery license and a turkey permit. Licenses are available online at https://www.nhfishandgame.com/.
