The 2009 Michigan spring turkey hunt is underway April 20 – May 31. Hunts last from 7 to 42 days, depending on the hunt unit.  According to the DNR, there are 48,138 square miles of Michigan open to spring turkey hunting. Pictured at right is Rockford resident Ken Chettleburg who bagged this 25 lb. beauty of a tom turkey at 9:30 a.m. last Saturday morning. Not wanting to divulge any secrets, Chettleburg would only tell us it was taken from a location just east of the Rockford City limits.  Assisting Chettleburg in the display of the turkey is his proud father Bob.
