Maine hunting slowing for summer as turkey hunt ends
AUGUSTA, Maine — Hunting is slowing down for the summer in Maine as the spring turkey hunt comes to an end.
Saturday was the last day of the year for the spring turkey hunt, which began on May 1 and took place all over the state. Hunters were allowed to take two bearded wild turkeys in most of Maine and one bearded turkey in some parts of far northern Maine.
Hunting will be slow in Maine for a few months until the late summer, when the bear hunt gets going. Hunters can lay bait for bears starting July 29 and start hunting Aug. 28.
The fall turkey hunt starts on Oct. 1.
