Turkey Hunting Regulations

Bag Limits and Tags

The daily bag limit will be three bearded turkeys per hunter with a season bag limit of three. All hunters are required to have a current unused turkey tag in their possession while hunting. Tags are currently $5/tag for residents and $20/tag for non-residents. Turkey tags are non-transferable and must be fastened with snaps and secured tightly around the neck or tarsus of any bird taken immediately after the kill. Tags purchased online shall be printed, placed in a ziplock bag, and secured with a rubber band. Tags may be purchased online and at a few commercial vendors on the island of Hawaii.

Further information may be obtained by contacting Division of Forestry & Wildlife (DOFAW) offices at the following phone numbers: Hilo: (808) 974-4221; Waimea: (808) 887-6063 or the main office at (808) 587-0166.
