Dalton Morgan,10, took his first turkey March 16 while hunting with his father in southern Warren County. The turkey had a 6-inch beard and was shot from 35 yards away. Dalton is the son of Brian and Jaclyn Morgan. Dalton is one happy kid in our great wild outdoors! My congrats!
Monty McGuffie shot this 20-pound turkey March 22 in Claiborne County. The gobbler had seven beards measuring from 5 1/2-inch to 11 1/2-inches in length, and also had 1 1/4-inch spurs.
Monty is also a taxidermist who mounted my very first 8 point buck. His mother and I are good friends and worked together for the U. S. Army Corps of Engineers. We have also deer hunted at my old hunting ground, Jasper Bottom Hunting Club in Claiborne County. I'm so very happy for Monty and congratulate him on his fine gobbler!
