This year’s wild turkey harvest in the state is down by about 10 percent from a year ago. The Conservation Department’s Jeff Beringer says cool, wet springs the last few years might have the bird numbers down a bit and less-than-ideal hunting weather for part of this year’s season might be keeping hunters out of the woods. Beringer says that’s understandable, but hunters shouldn’t hang it up quite yet. Beringer says there’s plenty of time to bag a gobbler between now and the end of the season on May 8th.
