Post What is the VA state record turkey
What is the Va state record for a wild turkey?
The reason I am asking, was this guy killed a bird on my aunts farm that weighed 27#. The breast was really covered with fat. Is this a record?

According to the NWTF records it is 27.25 lbs. A 27 pounder is huge! The Game Department records may tell a different story as the NWTF record only lists turkeys entered by their members. My biggest went 24 lbs. and according to their records ties for fourth place.

According to the the Virginia Big Game Trophy Statistics which were printed last year at the 67th Annual Big Game Trophy Show (which is the only show recognized by the VDGIF), only dates back to 1985 for Turkeys. (Deer dates back to 1948.)
The largest bird scored for the State Finals was in 2002:

Franklin P. Hatton, JR. from Nor. Thumberland 79 14/16

**(in 2006 Western Virginia hosted the state competition in Harrisonburg by the IWLA and for 2007 the VPSA will host the state finals at the Franklin County Fairgrounds )
