How many turkey tags can you buy?
« on: April 11, 2017, 01:39:19 PM »
I went to Cabelas today to buy my hunting license and turkey tags today.  I told her I wanted two turkey tags. She said I could only buy one turkey tag now and one at a later date. Is that right? I thought I could get two now. She would only sell me one so that will do I guess.

Does no one read the regs?

Quote
A total of three (3) turkeys in the spring season with following restrictions:
Only two (2) turkeys may be taken in eastern Washington and only one (1)
of those may be taken in Chelan, Kittitas, or Yakima counties (combined);
only one (1) turkey may be taken in western Washington per year outside
of Klickitat County. Two (2) turkeys may be taken in Klickitat County

I know it doesn't say you cant so you can.but obviously he thought he could and thats why it got brought up.its the clerks fault as i said.

 THE CLERK SHOULD HAVE LOOKED AT THE REGS. IT IS NOT ADDRESSED SO CLERK SHOULD HAVE KNOWN HE COULD GET ALL 3. is that better?  :chuckle:

I see. It is rather cryptic. Perhaps you can suggest a more understandable wording.

There are two morals to this story:
1.  You can buy your turkeys tags all at once.
2.  Don't mess with bob33 on the regs.

I am so ready to go turkey hunting!!!!!!

Yep, I try to be very careful with reading and understanding the regs, but I would not go up against Bob.

So, "additional tags may be purchased at any time". My take would be that "any time" includes along with the first tag.
