Turkey Season Is Open

Saturday marked the start of fall wild turkey season, a good time of year for first time game hunters. Pennsylvania Game Commission spokesman Travis Lau says for someone looking to take to Penn's Woods for the first time as a hunter, wild turkeys are a good choice, because of its slower pace and the fact that you're mostly stationary. You must be accompanied by an experienced hunter at all times. The Game Commission's web site, pgc.pa.gov, has information about mentored hunting programs for children as well as adults.
