MONTPELIER, Vt. -

It will be an early morning for a number of young hunters this weekend. Saturday and Sunday is spring youth turkey season in Vermont.

To participate in the two-day hunt, kids must be 15 or younger. The youth must have passed a hunting safety course, have a license and be joined by an unarmed adult who holds a hunting license.

Last year, young hunters shot 782 turkeys during the weekend hunt. They can take one bearded turkey this weekend.

The regular spring turkey season for all hunters begins May 1. That's this Thursday.
