Possbile world record turkey in Lyon

Cody Guess harvested a 37.6-pound wild turkey this week in Lyon County.

The National Wild Turkey Federation, which keeps records on such things, says the world record is currently 36 pounds.

The Lake News in Calvert City reports that Guess’s bird has been weighed on two different USDA certified scales that say it weighs 37. 6 pounds and it has been checked by other wildlife officials.

The gobbler 's spurs measured one and one-quarter inches and its beard 9.75 inches, the Lake News reported.
