AUGUSTA, Maine (AP) - The search for Thanksgiving dinner is underway in Maine.

The state’s fall wild turkey hunt begins Thursday and ends Oct. 30. The rules that govern the harvest of wild turkeys depend on where they are hunted.

Hunters can take two wild turkeys of either sex in much of southern Maine. The hunt is limited to one turkey of any sex in parts of central and northeastern Maine. No turkey hunting is allowed in far northern Maine.

Regulators say hunters should check with authorities before going out.

It’s legal to hunt turkeys with a bow and arrow or shotgun.
