Jim Pahel and his son Bradley Pahel each scored nice gobblers in southern Cameron County this spring. Bradley (right) harvested this gobbler on the first day of the season. It weighed 20 pounds and sported a 10” beard. Jim’s gobbler weighed 22 pounds and also had a 10” beard. He shot the bird on the first Friday of the season. Turkey hunters will have extended hours starting on Monday. The spring gobbler hunting season continues through May 31. Traditional noon closure is in place through Saturday (today), while hunting hours are from one-half hour before sunrise until one-half hour after sunset for the remaining two weeks (May 14-31).
