The fall turkey harvest was reported to be higher this --'--- m~ year in Ohio, Berkeley and Pendleton counties. The remaining 23 counties l llllJll open to fall turkey hunting reported lower harvests. "The primary cause for this decline in the fall wild turkey harvest was due to the wet, cold weather that occurred during the past two pring nesting seasons," noted Curtis I. Taylor, Chief of the Wildlife Resources Section. "These weather conditions reduced nesting success and the survival of young birds in the population. As a result, fewer birds were available for BOB PHILLIS " hunters to harvest this fall."
