Area youths shoot 24-pound turkeys
The spring turkey hunt is in full swing, and two Hastings kids are bringing home some impressive birds.
Dakota Theodorson, a freshman at Hastings High School, remembers the exact time he fired the shot that brought down his second turkey. It was at 6:22 a.m. Wednesday, April 17.
Theodorson's first kill was a 14-pound bird last year, he said. This one was nearly twice the size, a 24-pound tom with a nine-and-a-half-inch beard.
