PORTLAND (AP) — Maine’s autumn wild turkey season is underway.
The fall turkey season begins Thursday and runs until Halloween. Hunting is legal with a bow and arrow or shotgun and possession of valid permits.
There is a two turkey bag limit in ten wildlife management districts in central and southern Maine. Eight other districts in central and southern Maine will be limited to one turkey. Turkeys of either sex and any age are legal to hunt. Hunting will be closed in 11 districts mostly located in northern Maine.
