Youth hunters can get a jump start on the spring turkey hunting season this weekend.

Saturday, April 27, is Spring Wild Turkey Youth Hunting Day. Junior hunters who hold a valid junior hunting license can participate in these special youth hunting days. Daily bag limits still apply, which is up to two bearded wild turkeys.

The Maine Department of Inland Fisheries and Wildlife reminds hunters to "respect private landowners and teach youth hunters to always ask permission first."

The spring turkey season starts for everyone on Monday, April 29.
