Lyon, Ky. — The National Wild Turkey Federation has certified the largest turkey killed on record.

The gobbler, 37.6 pounds, was shot with a firearm by David Guess of Lyon County, Kentucky, on April 21.

The previous record turkey, 37.1 pounds, was killed in 2002 in Oregon.

According to published reports, Guess said he’s been tagging along on hunts since he was 3 years old and started hunting gobblers at the age of 5.

Guess’ gobbler had 1 1/4-inch spurs and a 9 3/4-inch beard. Guess shot the bird on his family’s farm in Kentucky.
