AUGUSTA, Maine - Maine's wild turkeys need to survive just a few more days to make it free and clear to Thanksgiving.
The state's fall turkey hunt ends on Wednesday. The birds were once nearly gone in Maine, but conservation efforts brought them back to the point that some Mainers consider them pests and traffic hazards.
The fall season is open in most of the state except far northern Maine. Hunters are limited to one or two birds of either sex depending on what part of the state they are hunting in.
The rest of the state's major fall hunting seasons are still going on. Those are the seasons for deer, moose and bears.
