Vandalia resident Todd McDowell harvested a 23-pound turkey on Monday, the first day of turkey hunting season.
Hunting near the Kaskaskia River, McDowell got the kill early in the morning.
In addition to its size, the turkey had a 9-inch beard and 1-inch spurs.
A photo of McDowell and his turkey was lost due to a memory card malfunction.
