‘‘We had this 20-pound tom walk in on us at about
8:30 a.m.,’’ Matt Kelly emailed about taking sons Kyle, 13, and Conor, 10, turkey
hunting during the weekend youth season in the north zone. ‘‘Kyle did the calling on a box call, and Conor [above] shot him when he charged our decoys. It’s the first turkey for our family and an experience we will never forget.’’

The Oak Forest family was hunting private land in
Carroll County.

Hunters in the youth seasons harvested a record 1,300 birds. The first season for turkey hunting in the north zone opens Monday.
