Well folks, my spring turkey season has come to an end so I thought I'd update everyone on the progress of my overall goal. After a very tough 2nd season in Pope county, I was able to find success during the 3rd and 4th seasons in Morgan and Scott Counties. I am happy to say that I scored longbeards in both Morgan and Scott counties! The Morgan County bird was 20.4 lbs, and had a 9.5 inch beard and 7/8 spurs, and was harvested on April 29. The longbeard I harvested in Scott County was the largest bird I've ever harvested at 24.0 lbs with an 11 inch beard and 1.25 inch spurs, harvested on May 3! So I was able to cross a couple counties off my list! I tried to enter the team contest this year but didn't happen to make a team. I am going to attempt to upload a couple of pictures ( as I've never done this before) in hopes of sharing them with you all. Hope everyone had a great turkey season and good luck to those with tags left!
