Statewide turkey hunters bagged 19,088 gobblers and of that number, 1,318 were during youth season. That total represents a nearly 16 percent drop from last season when turkey hunters tagged 22,635 gobblers. According to ODNR Biologist Mark Wiley, anytime 19,000 turkeys or more are harvested during the spring season they are pretty well satisfied.Taking youth season out of the equation, 17,770 wild turkeys were bagged by hunters during the regular season from April 22 through May 19 in the south zone, and April 29 to May 28 in the northeast zone. Compare that number to the 20,775 birds that were taken during that same period in the 2018 season and you can see the harvest numbers have dropped.Turkey hunting reached a peak in 2001 when a record 26,156 wild turkeys were harvested across Ohio during that spring.Down slightly too are the sales of spring turkey permits as hunters purchased 63,604 permits in 2019, which is down slightly from last season when 63,838 turkey permits were sold. In 2017, 65,586 permits were sold. The number of permits holders may decrease even more as a fee hike in both deer and turkey permits is expected in 2020. However if my math is correct somewhere between 25 to 30 percent of turkeys hunters are successful. Those are pretty good numbers.Locally Adams County did well as one of the 28 Ohio counties that posted gains this season. Although it’s been up and down for Adams County turkey hunters during the past four years, hunters did manage to harvest 417 gobblers this season; that is up from the 399 that were tagged in 2018 in Adams County. In 2017 turkey hunters bagged 503 gobblers; in 2016, 423 wild turkeys were killed in Adams County.Brown County hunters checked in 411 birds. Clermont had 334 birds tagged. Highland had 388 turkeys harvested. Pike County hunters checked in with 241 gobblers, and Scioto County turkey hunters took 284 wild turkeys. Of these counties only Adams, Brown and Highland posted gains over last season.Next year’s spring turkey season opens April 21, 2020.Cutting it close. Amy Copas from Decatur with a 20-pound gobbler she bagged on May 17, just two days before season closed. The bird had a 10-3/4 inch beard with 1-1/16 inch spurs. Her husband Derek was working that day so she hunted solo and called the bird in and killed it herself.
