Resident youth spring turkey permits, which may be purchased over the counter or online, are valid statewide, so residents age 15 and younger do not need to enter the Unit 4 draw.

The permit fee is $32.50, which includes the application fee. Unsuccessful applicants will receive a refund check for the permit price ($26) and be issued a preference point. Hunters may elect not to apply for a permit and only purchase a preference point for $6.50. Only one point may be obtained per year.
