Last weekend was the Youth Turkey Hunt sponsored by the New York State Department of Environmental Conservation. Earlier this week we featured 14 year old Matthew Vizzi who harvested his first turkey in Caneadea, NY.

Many other Western New York junior hunters were also successful and sent me their photos. I am proud of each one of these kids. Congratulations on a job well done!

Here's the photos of some these WYRK listeners and their birds.
