The Covid-19 pandemic has led to some temporary changes in state turkey hunting rules for purchasing minor licenses, obtaining stickers and reporting turkey harvests, according to an announcement from the Massachusetts Department of Fisheries and Wildlife.

Additionally, new regulations approved last year are taking effect for the first time this spring, including changes to daily and annual bag limits, shot size and Youth Hunt Day hours.
