No there will be no draw for the fall season... just go buy a tag like you do in the spring.
Have the specifics been set for the fall turkey season, as far as weapons allowed, dates, etc.?

Sounds good to me. Maybe I'll stick to the shotgun this spring, and concentrate on taking one with the bow next fall.
Fall Turkeys

That's my plan. I don't like the idea of putting guys with shotguns in the woods during our bow season. A little cold front and a little prerut activity would be more than some hunters could handle with a slug gun in their hands. Could be wrong, just seems like it will be hard to regulate. I wish we could take both birds in the spring, one of each sex.
I think they are still trying to increase the population. On the other hand, have you seen the numbers from DNR on how fast turkey are growing in number across the state? It's insane!

Yeah I understand WHY they are allowing the use of shotguns... I just don't agree with WHEN. October is a magical time to get in close on a mature whitetail because the hunting pressure on him is relatively low in bow season.. throw in a few shotgunners chasing turkeys and the deer will be pretty wirey before the rut comes in. Could effect our deer hunting more than many realize.
