Mayday! Mayday! There’s still time for turkey hunting!

Call-maker John Tanner likes to hunt food plots as the season wanes.

Spring turkey season in both North Carolina and South Carolina extends into May.

South Carolina hunters, who first got in the woods on March 20, can hunt through May 5 on private lands and most Wildlife Management Areas. The daily and season bag limits are two and three gobblers, respectively.

 North Carolina hunters can hunt deeper into May this year than any other, with the season lasting until May 12. Hunters who haven’t filled their season limit of two birds can take one gobbler per day.

In all cases for both states, check all applicable rules and regulations for any public-land hunting, as they may differ from regulations on private lands or between other public lands.
