When the fall turkey season moved from December to October in 2011, the statewide harvest jumped dramatically, from 1,233 in 2010 to 2,413 in 2011; the October 2012 harvest continued to be robust at 2,326. This year the take was well below the trend, only 1,635 birds, comprised of 539 toms, 478 jakes and 1,096 hens.
