First Week Regional Turkey Harvest Numbers Lower Than 2020

There were several factors that may have led to the result, but the first week of the Spring Turkey Harvest had lower numbers throughout the region. Josh Roller is with the Missouri Department of Conservation.


The Spring Firearms Turkey Season continues through May 9th.
