Allegany gobbles up turkey lead

November 23, 1990|By Bill Burton

In the fall wild turkey season, Allegany County again topped the list in early November with 178 birds. Next was Garrett with 122, and Washington with only 28 for a total of 328 compared with 302 in 1989.

This was far short of the 576 recorded in '87, but Department of Natural Resources forest game chief Josh Sandt said the bag was about that expected as hunters appear to be switching from fall to spring hunting. In addition, this year's hatch was described as "not super good because of a wet spring following 1989's poor mast crop."
