As we now look back on the 2013 spring turkey season, many of us have a good supply of fresh wild bird in the freezer.
I received some information last week I wasn’t sure I’d ever actually see again.
As we closed out another turkey season yesterday, I found myself thinking back over the days of the previous month and wondering a bit about what lies ahead for us.
I have a love/hate relationship with April. I love to see it coming and I hate to see it go.
Turkey hunters are always told of how potentially dangerous turkey hunting can be because we’re in the woods, camouflaged from the tops of our heads to the tips of our fingers and toes and are carrying shotguns.
Sometimes it’s youngsters who teach us old folks a thing or two.
It’s finally here: Turkey season opened Monday!
This past weekend, I couldn’t get over just how many turkeys I was seeing in the fields as I drove around. Although the sight of a large flock is quickly becoming commonplace around here, it was just a couple of years ago that such a spectacle was only heard of when hunters were discussing the old days.
With the start of our 2013 turkey season just a few days away, it makes sense to start pulling out all of your gear in preparation for that first day of April.
On Saturday, as a group of us were wrapping up a workday on our hunting property, we gathered back at our camp house to chew the fat before departing.
