Seasonal highlights

  • Time to go fishing! Get daily trout stocking updates from Mass.gov/trout, find freshwater fishing spots, or learn to fish with MassWildlife.
  • Get ready for spring turkey season. Review hunting regulations and tips for a great season.
  • Take your bird feeders down. Black bears are now active and seeking food, take precautions that will keep bears wild and out of neighborhoods.
  • If you care, leave them there. Finding a young animal alone does not mean it’s abandoned; the best thing you can do for young wildlife is to leave them alone. Learn more.
