Youth hunters got a jump start over the weekend, now the spring turkey season is underway for all.

Maine's spring turkey hunt is underway. The season opened Monday, April 29. With a valid Maine big game or small game hunting license, turkey hunters can purchase a wild turkey permit for $20 for both residents and non-residents. This permit allows turkey hunters to take up to two bearded wild turkeys in the spring, and an additional two turkeys of either sex in the fall.

The spring turkey season runs through June 1. For more information visit
