A friend and I are planning a trip to Connecticut this spring for a turkey hunt. We are looking for any insight anyone may have regarding hunting your great state for turkeys? I manufacture game calls for a living and would surely trade some calls or knowledge for some land to hunt or just a hot tip on where a good area might be. Also are licenses available over the counter?

I live in the southeast corner of Ct. Private land is hard to get permission on. There are state forests that have healthy populations of turkeys. Pachaug and Nehantic s.f. are worth checking out. You need a firearms or archery license plus a turkey permit , they can be bought over the counter.

I forgot the state did away with turkey permits , now you need a game bird conservation stamp. You can take 2 bearded toms on state land or 3 on private land in the spring. In the fall you can take 1 turkey on state, 2 on private land either sex. The limit is 5 per year.

Thank you to all that responded. We are from Pennsylvania and since your season opens a few days before ours, we thought we would give it a try.

Are you going to stick around and post some stories and pictures of some of your hunts? We would like that. I would like to see one of your calls. Flatlander gave you some good info.

We have been looking at the Natchaug State forest as it seems like a big chunk of land. Pm me your address and I will get some mouth calls headed your way for your help. I am the owner of Top Calls www.topcalls.com and private label over 100,000 mouth calls a year for the turkey hunting and predator industry. I assure you I am not trying to pull any wool over anyone's eyes by claiming to be something I am not.

Natchaug is a good choice , never hunted there so can't give specifics. Patchhaug is close by also , 27,000 acres. It can't hurt to knock on doors you might get lucky.
