Despite falling and breaking his hip on Monday, former President Jimmy Carter said his road to recovery wasn't what he was worried about. He was more worried about filling the remainder of his turkey tag before the season closes next week.

The Carter Center released the following statement on President Jimmy Carter:

While leaving to go turkey hunting this morning, former U.S. President Jimmy Carter fell at his home in Plains, Georgia. He is recovering comfortably from surgery to repair a broken him at Phoebe Sumter Medical Center in Americus, Georgia. His surgeon stated that the surgery was successful. His wife, Rosalynn, is with him.

President Carter said that his main concern is that turkey season ends this week, and he has not reached his limit. He hopes the State of Georgia will allow him to rollover his unused limit to next year.

People were quick to offer their thoughts and prayers for the 94-year-old. 

We wish you a speedy recovery, President Carter. And hopefully you can bag those remaining turkeys real soon.
