Hunters Check In 2,500 Fewer Turkeys In 2006

Less than perfect weather, combined with a lower turkey count and a later start to the season are all likely factors that contributed to a decline in the 2006 spring turkey harvest for hunters in Missouri.

The three-week season ended at 1:00 p.m. on Sunday, May 14th with a total of 51,018 turkeys checked in by hunters. That is down from last yearís harvest total of 53,798 and off the 2004 record pace of 56,882. There were nine hunting accidents statewide including one fatality.

Texas County had the largest harvest at 946 turkeys followed by Franklin County with 902 and Macon County with 873.

The northeast recording region had the largest total with 8,436 turkeys led by Macon County. Overall the region was down nearly 200 birds from 2005. Schuyler County saw the largest drop off, falling 188 off the 2005 pace with just 396 turkeys checked in. There were zero hunting accidents in the northeast district.

Scotland County was actually up four birds to 663, with 618 adult birds and 45 juveniles checked in.

Other neighboring counties saw mixed results. Clark County was down 81 to 521 and Adair County was down 86 to 801 while Knox County jumped up 73 to 721 turkeys, the third largest harvest in the northeast region behind Macon and Adair counties.
