Youth Turkey Hunters Set New State Record

Near perfect weather across Missouri helped young hunters set a new state record for the two-day 2005 Spring Turkey Youth Season held April 9-10.

Missouri hunters between the ages of six to 15 were allowed the special head start on the spring hunting season and took advantage, checking in a total of 3,894 birds. That broke the 2003 mark of 3,660 birds and was a 636 bird increase from last years totals.

Franklin County led the state with 89 turkeys checked in by youth hunters. Kids in Laclede County also did well, getting 81 turkeys, followed by Osage County with 73.

Locally, Scotland County hunters improved in 2005, checking in 27 adult gobblers as well as eight juveniles. That was a one-bird improvement from last season.

All but three counties in the 15-county Northeast Region reporting area for the Missouri Department of Conservation recorded increases in 2005 totals. Pike County had the biggest jump, getting 21 more turkeys. Macon County led the region with 61 birds checked in. Adair County was second with 44 followed by Monroe County with 40 and Pike County with 39.

There were zero hunting accidents statewide during the special season.

The young hunters proved to be fairly selective, with nearly two-thirds of the hunters taking adult gobblers. Just 1162 juvenile birds were harvested statewide compared to 2,732 adult birds.
