The California Department of Fish and Wildlife is now accepting applications for spring turkey hunts in northern California.

Several opportunities will be offered at the following locations: Daugherty Hill Wildlife Area, Spenceville Wildlife Area, Oroville Wildlife Area, Gray Lodge Wildlife Area, Cosumnes River Preserve, Bureau of Land Management’s Kanaka Valley and two units of the Upper Butte Basin Wildlife Area.

To apply, applicants must create an account and submit an application for their choice of hunts. Hunters will need to provide a name, mailing address, valid email address, phone number and 2015 hunting license GO ID. Applications and more information are available online (http://goo.gl/8Kex6n).

You may apply only once for each hunt, either as an applicant or as a guest. Submitting multiple applications will result in disqualification.

Hunters will be selected by a computerized drawing for only one hunt and only successful applicants will be notified.

Special hunts are provided in cooperation with many volunteer organizations. All upland game bird hunters, except those with junior hunting licenses, must purchase an Upland Game Bird Stamp, which supports these special hunts and other hunting programs.
