Franklin County Named Top Harvest County for Spring Youth Turkey Season

The Missouri Department of Conservation has released preliminary data from the 2018 spring youth turkey season.  Over the past weekend young turkey hunters in Missouri harvested 1,723 turkeys.  Franklin County was the top harvest county with 51 turkeys.  Miller and Maries counties came in tied for second with 43 turkeys each.  The overall numbers were down significantly from the previous year when young hunters checked in over 4,000 turkeys.  This drop is due largely to the unseasonably cold temperatures seen across Missouri.  The regular spring turkey season in Missouri is up next for many hunters.  The season will run from April 16th through May 6th.
