Long turkey-hunting season opens in Nebraska

Lincoln, Neb. (AP) – The fall turkey season is under way in
Nebraska, and this one will be longer than hunters have enjoyed in
the past.

The fall season opened Tuesday. Holders of fall turkey hunting
permits can go after gobblers with either a shotgun or bow until
Dec. 31.

The season will not be suspended in November, which marks the
firearm deer season. But turkey hunters must wear at least 400
square inches of hunter orange on their head, chest and back during
deer season.

In 2008, more than 11,300 turkey permits were sold, and about
8,800 birds were taken. Those numbers are expected to increase this
year because of the longer season.
