New State Record For Largest Turkey Killed With A Bow

A man from Ozark set a new state hunting record - the largest turkey killed with a bow.

Michael Heffernon got the 26.1 pound bird while filming a hunting show. 

"I picked out the dominant one, the bird that was strutting and let my arrow fly," says Heffernon. 

State turkey records are monitored by the National Wild Turkey Federation. In order to become an official record, Heffernon will have to have his turkey weighed on an official scale. 

The previous state record turkey weighed 25 pounds.
