Scott Ellis Seminar from 2019 NWTF Convention This week, I am sharing the seminar from the Scott Ellis Seminar called "Setting the Mood" from the 2019 NWTF Convention in Nashville, TN.

A Giant New York Wild Turkey This week, I share the story of my 2nd New York wild turkey hunt. We spotted this turkey with some hens and jakes in a hay field on a hillside. After relocating we found ourselves set up about 75 yards from the turkey with the guide float calling behind us using jake and hen calling. This was an interesting hunt with a huge double bearded turkey on the ground after the shot. Listen in and enjoy!

Phillip Vanderpool Q&A Seminar from 2019 NWTF Convention This week I have the Phillip Vanderpool seminar from the 2019 NWTF Convention in Nashville, TN. Phillip filled in on very short notice for Ray Eye during the convention due to Ray's leaving the show to tend to an emergency at home.

In this week's news is Iowa, Missouri, Illinois, Rhode Island, Ohio, Arkansas, Virginia, Maryland, West Virginia, Nebraska, and Wisconsin turkey hunting harvest results and announcements of brood surveys being conducted. I also make mention of truly custom turkey calls made by Primos and turkey socks designed by yours truly - yep, turkey...

Apple Orchard Turkey This week I tell the story, and share the audio of, my first New York state turkey. This was a rather odd hunt - at least the first 1/2 of the hunt anyway - but it turned out to be an exceptional hunt when all of the dust settled. In our first setup we were skirted by 3 toms and several hens who did not come into view for me, but were standing about 5 feet from my buddy Chip. In our second setup, some hen and jake calling brought this 2 year old turkey close enough...

A Good Ending to a Weird Season Today, I'm sharing my final hunt of Alabama's 2019 turkey season with you. As Colonel Tom Kelly so accurately and eloquently stated in his book, Better on a Rising Tide, “Turkey hunting is a magical, intellectual, tactical exercise conducted out of doors. It is a personal, contemplative sport, and does not require the production of a dead turkey to be classified as a success.” I sometimes wonder if we turkey hunters use that line or thought to justify our...
