— Bob Long, biologist with the Maryland Wildlife & Heritage Service, talks with Zach Virts, Swanton, Thursday about proposed changes to the turkey season. A public meeting about new hunting regulations was held at Mountain Ridge High School. Virts said he opposes the creation of a week-long turkey season in January in Garrett County because the birds have a difficult time dealing with a typical high country winter and would also be too easy to kill under those conditions.
