HUNTING — Washington's youth wild turkey hunting season is history, and the general spring gobbler seasons don't open until April 15.

But Idaho youths under the age of 16 get their special turn at the toms starting Friday and running through April 14.

All youth hunters must have a valid hunting license and follow season rules, which can be found online on the Idaho Fish and Game website.

Turkey hunting requires special attention to safety in the field. Check out these tips.
