Cherokee’s spring turkey hunting season is open April 8 – May 20. Hunters are invited to participate as a field reporter and submit turkey harvest data to the EBCI Natural Resources program. This information is important to help the department maintain a healthy turkey population on Cherokee lands. Call 359-6109 after a turkey is harvested with some or all of the following information: location and date of kill, number of days hunted to kill the bird, turkey’s approximate age (adult or juvenile), turkey’s spur length, and turkey’s beard length.
