Trevor Simmons scored twice during his Thanksgiving morning hunt in Franklin County.
The six-pointer, which had a broken leg, fell first. Then Simmons killed the gobbler, which had an 8-inch beard, an hour later.
Not a bad way to start a holiday!

While growing up in rural Southern Oregon, Mark Taylor
developed a passion for the outdoors while he and his younger brother tagged along with their father on fishing,
hunting and camping adventures.
Graduating from Northwestern University in 1988, Taylor spent four years as an officer in the U.S. Navy based
in Norfolk before moving into journalism.
After five years writing about the military for a Norfolk-based publishing company, he became the outdoors
