          Good guesses. Here is what NWTF site says
          Missouri
          Alabama
          Pennsylvania
          Wisconsin
          New York
          Mississippi
          Michigan
          Oklahoma
          Texas

            I am going to take a wild guess and say Wisconsin, because charlie elk kills a lot of turkeys.

              It's spring, so I was thinking spring harvest (oops) Looks like NWTF includes fall harvest. If only spring is counted according to MDC Missouri's kill was 43,273 turkeys in 2014 to Wisconsin's 41,760. There is a bit of a rivalry between MO and WI as to which state gets the top with the most spring turkeys. Very few WI hunters go after fall turkeys.

                I can say that I added to that Missouri total. The turkey total made more than just a few headlines in the papers so I knew the answer right away. Turkey population is booming while the deer population...well, not so much.

                    I was going to say it was my home state of Alabama, but I won't argue about it being Missouri, especially since I find it harder and harder to find turkeys on my ground over the past few years.

                      I have been away from this site for a few days, so I'm late on some of these. I was actually going to say Missouri though based on what I read in what, if I remember right was my Missouri Conservationist magazine.
