MONTPELIER (AP) -- The Vermont Department of Fish and Wildlife is reminding hunters that the spring turkey season is coming up.

The regular spring season runs for the month of May. Hunting hours are 30 minutes before sunrise until noon.

The youth turkey season is set for the weekend of April 27 and 28.

Vermont reintroduced 31 turkeys to the state in 1969 and 1970. The department says Vermont’s turkey population is now one of the highest in New England, with an estimated 50,000 turkeys.

More information about the hunt is available on the department’s website.
