Fall Wild Turkey Season Begins Today!
Maine IF&W reminds turkey hunters that all birds harvested in the upcoming fall turkey season must be registered either in person at a tagging station or online. To self-register a turkey online, hunters may use any electronic device with internet access. If a hunter has a poor internet connection, they must attach a transportation label (with their name, license number, and address) and drive to a location with better signal.
Once self-registered, hunters will receive a seal number via email to confirm the wild turkey was registered. The confirmation can be saved to the device or printed. There is no fee to self-register a turkey online.
The Fall Wild Turkey Hunting season opens to all hunters on Monday, Sept. 18 and ends Nov. 7, 2023. Before heading afield, be sure to pair your hunting license with a turkey hunting permit.
