West Virginia's spring turkey kill was the lowest in over 20 years, according to WV-DNR.

Hunters killed 9,216 bearded turkeys during the spring season in West Virginia, a 10 percent drop from a year ago.

The Division of Natural Resources said Friday that a lower hunter turnout due to high gas prices and rainy weather was to blame, in addition to a smaller turkey population.

Mason, Preston, Kanawha and Jackson counties reported the most kills.
