Fall Hunting Forecast

Turkey and Deer will provide the best hunting opportunities this fall. Several turkey nests and broods were observed throughout the summer. Turkeys are very susceptible to hunting pressure and disturbance, and can easily be pushed off a small area like St. Francis. Early season hunting should provide the best chances for success.

Early muzzle loader and archery seasons will provide the best opportunities for deer. Don’t forget the Youth deer season (Sept. 13-21). This is an excellent opportunity to introduce a young person to the sport.
