Hunters killed fewer turkey's this year during West Virginia's spring gobbler season. The DNR says this year's kill of 9,976 is 15 percent lower than last year's total at 11,735 birds.

Calhoun recorded 147 kills for 2007.

The DNR says the decline was due to poor brood production in 2005, which resulted in fewer two-year-old gobblers.

Mason County led the state in the number of kills with 403 turkeys.

Gilmer (224) 151
