Biologist: Looks like a good year for the spring turkey hunt

The Associated Press

CONCORD — A N.H. Fish and Game turkey biologist says prospects are good for a record harvest of wild turkeys this spring.

Last year, turkey hunters took more than 4,000 birds.

Biologist Ted Walski says he's expecting some early breeding and hatching this spring because of the mildness of the second half of this winter and lack of snow cover.

New Hampshire's Youth Turkey Hunting Weekend is April 30-May 1. The regular spring turkey hunt season opens May 3, and runs through May 31.

A turkey license is required for hunters — $16 for state residents and $31 for nonresidents. It allows the taking of one gobbler during the spring and one turkey of either sex during the fall archery season or during the fall shotgun season.
