Those who stick it out can be rewarded.
Jim Forbes killed this nice gobbler a week ago, on the final Monday of the season. He was hunting national forest ground.
I am trying to get my hands on the final turkey tally but understand from DGIF that it might not be released until tomorrow. I would be shocked if the total doesn’t eclipse the previous record of 18,345 from 2002, given that hunters were already just about 1,000 birds shy of the mark early last week.
Congrats to Jim for contributing to the total!
