About Turkey Hunting in Wyoming

Limited Quota

Turkey hunting, both spring and fall, has a growing following in Wyoming. Many areas are hunted with a general license (full price), that can be purchased over-the-counter, but some areas have a limited quota license (Type 1 and Type 3). Limited quota licenses are issued by drawing. A separate license is required to hunt turkeys during the spring and fall seasons. Hunters can obtain general licenses either through the draw or at license selling agents throughout the season.


Turkey hunt area 1, the Black Hills, is Wyoming’s best public land hunt area. Situated close to turkey range in Montana, South Dakota and Nebraska, some hunters will come to the Black Hills for a multi-state spring Merriam’s hunt. Public land hunting is also available on scattered portions of the Medicine Bow National Forest between Casper and Wheatland.
