Although the National
Wild Turkey Federation reports that the wild turkey resides in 49
states across America, 40% of the record tom entries come directly from
Iowa, Illinois, and Missouri. In fact, during the 2005 Spring Gobbler
Season IMB Hunters recorded two birds that finished in the top 50 toms
of all time. While all three States hold much promise of success
Missouri has measured up as the #1, State in the Nation for populations
of turkey, and recorded trophy toms for more than 7 consecutive years.
In short, the greatest turkey hunting in the world is located in the
State of Missouri. Wanna get a little more technical. Wild turkey
populations in the State of Missouri are not equal throughout the
state. Southern portions of the state do not hold the highest
populations of birds. The highest population of wild turkey in Missouri
are in the Northern Counties of Macon, Shelby, Adair, and Knox. These
are the very counties you’ll be hunting in during your pursuit of a
trophy tom or toms with our company.
Illinois, Iowa, and Missouri present the modern day turkey hunter with
a pure species of Eastern Turkeys. The average bird our clients harvest
is around 22 lbs, 10 inch beard, and over 1 ¼ inch spurs. Both fully
and semi guided hunts are available with fully guided hunts averaging a
higher success rate.
In fact, during the 2005 Spring Season, IMB hosted the Hunter
Specialties Outdoor Writers Convention, sponsored by Thompson Center,
Hunter Specialties, and Husqvarna. Famed Outdoor Television Celebrity
and HS Pro Staffer, Alex Rutledge spearheaded the campaign and was
accompanied by the industries top outdoor writers as seen to the right.
Many of our hunters choose to hunt multiple states during their visit
with us in the Spring. While you’re here you could hunt up to 3 states
in one trip and harvest multiple birds as the seasons run
