Those who didn't draw a permit to hunt wild turkeys during Utah's limited-entry hunt can still hunt turkeys in the state this spring.
The general statewide hunt starts Friday for those who were 15 years of age or younger on Jan. 27. Adult hunters get to join the youngsters next Monday, and the hunt ends on May 31.
Justin Dolling, upland game and migratory game bird coordinator for the Division of Wildlife Resources, said turkey populations are strong enough that all of Utah's hunters can participate this year.
But despite how well the state's turkey population is doing overall, Dolling said the birds are struggling in two areas of the state.
