Turkey Hunter Access Program

turkey hunter

Turkey Hunting Access Program (THAP) is a pilot program that provides financial incentives to private landowners who allow access on their property to hunters. Spring turkey hunting is the only activity allowed on THAP properties. Lands are open from March 1 - May 29 for spring turkey hunting and scouting only. Download general program details [PDF]

Landowner information

Lease rates are $5/acre/year. Payment is an upfront lump sum payment within 60 days of signing. Check eligibility by submitting an email form [PDF] or by contacting the program coordinator.

Landowners who are located within turkey management zone 2 [PDF] are eligible to apply. However, properties must be greater than 40 acres and have adequate wild turkey habitat to provide ample wild turkey hunting opportunities.

Hunter guidelines

  • Constructing or erecting blinds, stands or other structures is not allowed. Portable structures are acceptable, but don’t damage trees and take blinds or stands with you when you leave each day.
  • Users do not need to ask permission to access THAP properties.
  • Use designated parking areas when provided.
  • Travel on foot only.
  • Respect landowner rights.
