    To start, congratulations to the MCHS girls basketball team on a great year … you were perfect!
    So what’s coming up? Well, for the hunters we have our spring turkey season. For our youth hunters, the season runs April 6-7. Everyone else can turkey hunt April 13 through May 5. Limit is one per day, two per season no matter how you take them. As an example: I plan on taking one bird with my shotgun and one with my crossbow … total of two.
