The Carter Center announced on Monday afternoon that former President Jimmy Carter is recovering from surgery after breaking his hip before a turkey hunting trip.

According to the Center, Carter fell at his home in Plains, Georgia as he was leaving for his hunting expedition.

Although the surgery was “successful,” the ex-president apparently had one major worry: “President Carter said his main concern is that turkey season ends this week, and he has not reached his limit,” the statement reads. “He hopes the State of Georgia will allow him to rollover the unused limit to next year.”
