Email

ST. PAUL - Preliminary harvest numbers show that the 2012 spring turkey harvest of 11,324 is the third-highest ever, according to the Minnesota Department of Natural Resources (DNR).

"Minnesota's turkey population largely has rebounded from the severe winter of 2010-2011 and last year's cold, wet spring," said Steve Merchant, DNR wildlife program and populations manager. "These resilient and productive birds provided hunters with more opportunity."
