Spring Wild Turkey Hunting Season

Between April 28th and June 2nd, Maine's Spring Wild Turkey hunting season will be active. In Cumberland, hunting is allowed at Knight's Pond, Rines Forest, and Town Forest. During the hunting season, we would recommend that anyone who is walking in these areas strongly consider wearing blaze orange to help readily identify you when you are in the woods. Outfitting your dog with a blaze orange vest is an excellent idea also. Please be aware that hunters may utilize a variety of turkey calls to try and lure a wild turkey in to their location. It is never advisable to go toward the sound of a turkey call to investigate. Be safe when you are out enjoying our amazing town parks!
