Free-Ranging Eastern Wild Turkeys
Featured Stories on BackYard Chickens
The first thing that you need to do is to contact your local G&F Dept. or game warden. They can very quickly let you know if and what kind of permit that you need to have or if you are even allowed to have them. Every state is different on their laws regarding wild turkeys.
In my state the G&F require a permit and a property and pen inspection before allowing a person to have wild turkeys. They also do not permit the permittees to free range their wild turkeys.
Your local game warden can clear up these types of issues for you.
