Saturday, April 30 is the end of spring turkey season. The Alabama Department of Conservation and Natural Resources (DCNR) would like to remind Alabama hunters that they are required to report their turkey harvest via Game Check.
DCNR would also like to remind Alabama turkey hunters that mechanically-manipulated decoys are illegal in Alabama under hunting regulation 220-2-.11, which prohibits the use of any turkey decoy that has mechanical or electronic moving parts or is capable of producing movement and/or sound. DCNR said that examples of these range from decoys mounted to radio-controlled cars to those which are mounted directly to the barrel of a shotgun and mechanically-manipulated by the hunter.
