    Maine Turkeys Giving No Thanks as Fall Hunt Begins

    Maine hunters love fall, but one of the state's most popular game animals must think it's for the birds.

    That's because the state's wild turkey hunt gets started on Monday and runs until Nov. 7.

    Maine's wild turkey population has rebounded over the years to the point where it supports two popular hunts. One is the spring and the other fall.

    The hunt is closed in parts of far northern Maine. Hunters are advised to check with the Maine Department of Inland Fisheries and Wildlife before hunting. The bag limit also differs depending on where the turkey is harvested.
