Jimmy Carter has always been an avid hunter, and age sure isn’t stopping him! At 94 years old, the 39th president of the U.S. bagged a wild turkey on Realtree Farms.
Tyler Jordan and Bill Jordan took Carter to Columbus to take a large wild tom. Tyler posted, “94 years old and still bustin’ beaks! An unforgettable morning in the woods with President Carter at Realtree Farms.” Bill Jordan is the founder and owner of the popular camo clothing manufacturer, Realtree.
President Carter has been known for his love of the outdoors and has written about his pursuits including Sharing Good Times and Outdoor Journal. Carter was inducted into the Georgia Hunting and Fishing Hall of Fame in 2016. He is currently holding the record for the oldest living 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.”
