    Default Connecticut Spring turkey hunt?

    A friend and I are planning a trip to Connecticut this spring for a turkey hunt. We are looking for any insight anyone may have regarding hunting your great state for turkeys? I manufacture game calls for a living and would surely trade some calls or knowledge for some land to hunt or just a hot tip on where a good area might be. Also are licenses available over the counter?

    I can tell you there is plenty of public land. I’ve never hunted CT, but hopefully Meatseeker will chime in. He has a lot of CT experience.

    I live in the southeast corner of Ct. Private land is hard to get permission on. There are state forests that have healthy populations of turkeys. Pachaug and Nehantic s.f. are worth checking out. You need a firearms or archery license plus a turkey permit , they can be bought over the counter.

    Masopinic and Nepotomic State Forests are good also.

    I forgot the state did away with turkey permits , now you need a game bird conservation stamp. You can take 2 bearded toms on state land or 3 on private land in the spring. In the fall you can take 1 turkey on state, 2 on private land either sex. The limit is 5 per year.

    I think you got the spelling wrong.

    Thank you to all that responded. We are from Pennsylvania and since your season opens a few days before ours, we thought we would give it a try.

    The northwest corner of the state would probably work out best for you.
