New Hampshire and Maine fall turkey hunting—the restoration of this bird only began in the mid 1970s in N.H. and shortly thereafter in Maine—has involved autumn archery-only options, coinciding with bowhunting for deer. Recent developments saw N.H. initiate a short gun turkey season last fall, extra permit required, in a limited zone. This year, that's still the case in the Granite State (Oct. 15-19), and even the Pine Tree State has added a six-day firearms turkey season, additional permit required (Oct. 13; Oct. 15-19). Why?

COLUMBUS - Hunters are preparing for Ohio's upcoming fall wild turkey season, which runs Saturday, October 13 through Sunday, October 28, according to the Ohio Department of Natural Resources (ODNR) Division of Wildlife.

The 16-day season is followed by the fall archery-only wild turkey season, which opens Monday, October 29 and ends Sunday, November 25. Thirtyseven counties are open for fall turkey hunting.

Unlike the spring firearms turkey season the fall season presents a greater challenge to hunters in order to harvest a bird. The turkeys are not calling to each other as they do in the spring season. During the spring mating season it is easy to locate a bird quickly by listening for the gobble of the male turkey. In the fall the birds are quiet, well camouflaged, and busy looking for food.
