Maine Turkey Hunts

turkey

Wild Maine Turkey Hunting is a relatively new sport for the state of Maine. Thanks to conservation and management efforts, the flock has made a tremendous comeback in recent years. Although sightings are now quite common, seeing a flock of wild turkeys is very exciting. For many hunters, nothing matches the sights and sounds of a flock of turkeys at daybreak or the thrill of successfully calling in and bagging a huge gobbler.

The day’s hunt will start well before dawn and last until 12:00 pm. We will rise early and be in the field by 4:30 a.m. We will try to get close to a rutting tom and use a hen call to lure him into shotgun range. If you are a newcomer to the sport, I can do the calling for you, more experienced hunters will want to do their own calling.

No more lotteries to deal with in order to hunt Turkeys. The spring and fall wild turkey hunting seasons are open to all hunters with valid big or small game Maine hunting licenses. A combination spring/fall wild turkey permit is also required and available for $20, plus agent fee.
