CONCORD, N.H. (AP) - The New Hampshire Fish and Game Department is warning turkey hunters to be extra sure of their targets as the spring season gets underway.

The state’s spring turkey hunt opens Saturday and runs through May 31.

The department said hunters should be aware of the increased number of people enjoying the outdoors during the coronavirus pandemic and be prepared with backup locations if their desired spot is crowded.

Some registration locations may be closed or have limited hours due to the pandemic, but hunters also can register their birds online.

A New Hampshire turkey license is required for hunters of all ages.
