As Tyler Jordan put it, former President Jimmy Carter is “94 years old and still bustin’ beaks!”
Jordan and his father, Bill Jordan, recently took Carter hunting at Realtree Farms in Columbus, and Carter bagged a large wild turkey.
Bill Jordan is founder of Realtree, which began as a camouflage clothing store but now sells everything from camo outfits to comforters.
Tyler Jordan posted photos of the morning’s results on Instagram.
This isn’t the first time Carter has brought back a turkey from a hunting trip with the Jordans, as this 2017 Facebook post shows.
The 39th president of the United States is known to be an avid hunter. Outdoorhub named him the fifth greatest hunting president.
“I have used weapons since I was big enough to carry one, and now own two handguns, four shotguns and three rifles, two with scopes,” Carter wrote in a 2009 op-ed to the New York Times. “I use them carefully, for hunting game from our family woods and fields, and occasionally for hunting with my family and friends in other places. We cherish the right to own a gun and some of my hunting companions like to collect rare weapons. One of them is a superb craftsman who makes muzzle-loading rifles, one of which I displayed for four years in my private White House office.”
The Times followed then-President Carter home to Plains for Christmas in 1977.
