Turkey Hunting photo

And it’ll be just in time for Thanksgiving.

From Newsday:

_This fall, Long Island will have its first-ever wild turkey hunting season. The season – the five days leading up to Thanksgiving – will limit hunters to taking one bird apiece at several Suffolk locations with either a bow and arrow or shotgun, state regulators said.

State officials, who announced the special hunting season Tuesday, said the hunt was necessitated by the remarkable repopulation of wild turkeys on Long Island.
