Youth Hunters Enjoy Highly Successful Turkey Season

Near perfect weather conditions, both for the hunters and for the birds, led to a significant increase in the harvest totals for the two day youth spring turkey hunting season across Missouri.

Youngsters between the ages of 6 to 15 took to the field April 10 and 11 and bagged a total of 3,944 turkeys. That marked a 1,059-bird increase from last season.

Scotland County hunters checked in 33 turkeys, up 10 from last year. All but one of the 16 counties in the northeast recording area of the Missouri Department of Conservation registered increases from 2009 harvest totals. Macon was tops in total harvest and also saw the largest increase, bagging 49 turkeys, a 22-bird hike from last years totals. Clark County hunters checked in 31 birds (+8) as did Knox County (+10), while Schuyler County youths harvested 23 turkeys (+15).

Overall, the 469 turkeys harvested in the northeast region was an increase of 173 from 2009.

The Central region topped the state with 650 turkeys harvested, narrowly edging the southwest region (644). Franklin County was tops in the state with 133 successful youth hunts. Osage County had 100 turkeys checked in and Sainte Genevieve County was third high with 77.

Statewide, 72 percent of the birds checked in were adult gobblers, with the remaining 28% made up of jakes.
