2013 spring turkeys ahead of hunters

Here is an article by the St Paul Pioneer Press about the early Minnesota spring turkey harvest through season A.

Generally speaking, wild turkeys do just fine in Minnesota’s cold weather.

Especially so when the cold weather keeps the hunters away.

It should come as no surprise that far fewer birds were killed in the early part of this spring’s hunting season than last year.

Hunters killed 1,723 birds during the A Season, which began April 17 to and ended Sunday, said Steve Merchant, who’s overseeing the spring season for the Minnesota Department of Natural Resources. That’s actually pretty impressive considering the weather the first two days of the season.

Last year, 3,160 birds were killed in the A Season.

The B Season began Monday and ends Friday. Totals might not be available until next week.
