AUGUSTA, Maine (AP) - Maine’s winter hunting seasons are ending for the year in the next two weeks.

Hunters pursue small game such as snowshoe hares and gray squirrels during the winter, as well as bigger species such as bobcats and foxes. The winter seasons start closing out on Feb. 21 with the end of the bobcat hunt.

The fox and squirrel seasons close out on Feb. 28. The hare season lasts until March 31, though it closes on Vinalhaven Island on Feb. 28.

The most popular spring hunting season is for wild turkeys. That season kicks off with youth spring wild turkey day on April 28.
