FARGO, N.D. (AP) — Fargo's in-town turkey hunt has been delayed about a month to conform to state hunting rules.

The Forum reports the season was slated to open at sunrise on Saturday for bow hunters. But due to state regulations, the start of the season has been delayed to Oct. 12.

The state has issued 36 of the 45 turkey hunt permits available in Fargo.

Fargo police Lt. Gene Anderson says the city will send out notices to hunters telling them they'll have to wait another month for the hunt.

Officials hope the new hunting season will help control turkey populations in town.
