after a successful hunt in Ridgeland on March 12, 2016
Case in point is the turkey harvest success that many youth hunters reported in the Lowcountry on the March 12 youth day. Yes, the adults will still have an opening day filled with excitement on March 20, but this date seems to fall particularly flat in 2016 since it brings opening day of turkey season in on a Sunday morning, in conflict with church goers. Perhaps the new state-wide turkey season dates will even out over the years in terms of fairness, but that won't change the ill effects on tap for 2016. Another big change for turkey hunters to know is that the bag limit per hunter was reduced from five gobblers to three due to a reduced overall turkey population.
