Tennessee turkey hunters passed the 30,000 harvest mark for the 12th straight year during the spring season which concluded last month. 

The Tennessee Wildlife Resources Agency reports that the 2014 harvest stands at 32,495. The harvest just slips past the 2013 total of 32,489.

Sportsmen faced inclement weather on several weekends during the season. That especially included the opening morning of the season when rain and cool temperatures were present in most areas of the state.

Maury County was again the top county with a harvest of 1,149. Greene County was again second with 786. Rounding out the top 10 counties were Dickson 719, Montgomery 686, Henry 679, Sumner 667, Wilson 647, Giles 618, Hickman 610, and Hardin 591.

The Tennessee Fish and Wildlife Commission set the 2014-15 state hunting seasons at its late May meeting. The 2014 fall turkey season is Oct. 11-24. The 2015 spring turkey season will run for 44 days from April 4-May 17. The Young Sportsman Turkey Hunt is the weekend of March 28-29.
