April 26, 2006 - TRC

AUGUSTA, Maine -- Once again this year, junior hunters who are interested in turkey hunting get their own day before the regular season starts.

Hunters who are 10 years of age or older and under 16 years of age and possess a junior hunting license and a Spring Turkey Permit may hunt under the supervision of an adult on April 29, 2006.

Junior hunters may hunt for one bearded turkey with firearms or bow and arrow, and must be accompanied by parent, guardian, or a qualified adult. The qualified adult must be a person 18 or older who has been approved by the youth's parent or guardian and must hold a valid Maine hunting license or have completed a hunter safety course. The accompanying adult cannot possess a firearm.
