Illinois hunting and fishing

Paige Schiffman poses with her first turkey, which was 21.2 pounds, had a 10¼ inch beard, one 1 inch spur and another 1 1/8 inches long. Her pround father, Rob Schiffman, says he had a much bigger smile than his daughter. Paige killed the bird on April 27 in south central Wisconsin, with her father’s assistance after some torrential down pours of rain and windy conditions the day prior. Paige, a frequent duck hunting companion with her Dad, said she can’t wait for next year.
