Franklin County Named Top Harvest County for 2017 Spring Turkey Season

Preliminary numbers are in from the Missouri Department of Conservation for the 2017 spring turkey season.  Data shows Missouri turkey hunters checked 39,239 turkeys during the season which ran from April 17th through May 7th.  Franklin County was the top harvest county with 932 birds.  Texas County was second with 843, followed by Callaway County with 697. 

In addition, young turkey hunters harvested 4,100 turkeys during the 2017 spring youth season, which brings the overall total for 2017 to 43,399.  The overall total is down from last year’s total of 48,374 turkeys.  However, much of this was due to poor weather during the season and poor hatches for turkeys over the past couple of years.
