Default Turkey draws anyone?

Applications for the turkey draws close in a couple days and I haven't seen one post or
know of anyone even applying this year........................

Maybe everyone is counting on over the counter permits this year????? I kinda hope so.

I've got everyone eligible in our house in for the southern region LE.

There will be unlimited over the counter tags for the 2010 general season in May.

Too busy hunting out of state during April. Taking my son to the Black Hills for his first out of state hunt. Plus, May is more fun to hunt anyway.

I'm just going to buy a tag. Then I'm going down and kill a big tom with a 12 inch beard in #1Deer1-I's back yard on public ground. You're welcome to come with me 1-I, I've been known to call in more than one gobbler at a time.

I'm putting in for Southern Region hunts again, but likely won't draw the early hunts since I drew last year. However, I'm more stoked that my 11 year old son should have hunter's safety passed by the time the over the counter tags go on sale and will be enjoying getting him out for his first turkey hunt.

I saw a large group of about 30 turkeys in the western Uintas while elk hunting this past fall. Surprised me they were up high - around 9,000'. 4-5 adults, the rest were young ones that I hope will live through the winter. I wonder where they'll be come May...

TEX... will you be my guide? I was thinking of putting my two boys in for it, but I have not the faintest clue how to hunt a Turkey. However I am sure I can road-hunt one and get it off the wheeler!
Serious what should I put my boys in for? I am not all that Turkey savy....

TAK,,,,Here's some info on youth hunts, All your kids need is hunters safety.
They can apply for limited entry and if not successful still hunt youth and
general season hunts.........Great place to start kids, My 12 year old has two
toms under his belt already with landowner tags.

O
pportunities for youth
Utah Admin. Rule R657-62-25 and R657-54-22
This season, young hunters in Utah will have many exciting opportunities to hunt and harvest a wild turkey.
Limited-entry permits for youth
Up to 15 percent of Utah’s turkey
limited-entry permits have been set aside for young hunters.
If you’ll be 15 years of age or younger on Jan. 28, 2010 (the day when results of the turkey drawing are available) you’ll be automatically entered in the youth permit drawing when you apply for your permit.
With a turkey limited-entry permit, you can hunt only the region listed on your permit from April 10–29, 2010. You may not participate in the general-season hunt with a limited-entry permit.
General-season permits and the youth-only hunt
If you’re a youth who obtains a turkey general-season permit, you can participate in Utah’s first Youth Turkey Hunt from April 30 – May 2, 2010. (See page 24 for shooting hours.) This hunt will be restricted to youth who are 15 years of age or younger by Jan. 28, 2010.
No matter what turkey permit a youth obtains, an adult must accompany the young hunter in the field. During the youth hunt, the accompanying adult may not hunt or possess a firearm.
If you do not harvest a turkey during the youth hunt, you can continue to hunt during the turkey general season, which runs from May 3–31, 2010.
Please see page 9 of this guide for more information
