We think there may be more turkey than ham on the table this Easter. Tennessee's spring turkey hunt went off with a bang last weekend, with a substantial rise in the harvest this year compared to last year.

For the opening weekend, by the end of the day Sunday there were 8,367 turkeys harvested. A number that was larger than last year's opening weekend by 1,170. The season will end on May 13th.

The Midstate continues to have the most bountiful harvest, with four of the top five counties: Maury (271), Greene (212), Dickson (206), Sumner (201) and Henry (198). From The Tennessean.
