My name is Steve Clark, and I am a first year turkey hunter. Hmmm.. sounds like an AA meeting intro. Well, my good friend Jim in North carolina told me that these turkeys were addicting, and he was right. I grew up in mid Minnesota hunting and fishing for anything and everything, but I don't remember anyone ever mentioning wild turkeys. That was in the 70's and early 80's and maybe the populations weren't that good back then. I moved to Virginia in '87 and pretty much quit hunting and fishing because of new location and no friends that were interested in that. Then I moved to NC and met Jim (Cut N Run). He got my butt of the sofa and out on the water and back into fishing in a big way. He also tried many times to convince me to go hunting with him, and I kept putting him off. Well, then I moved again and now am in Edgewood, New Mexico since fall of '06. This spring after hearing Jim tell me about his prep for the upcoming season I decided I HAD to get out there. I read everything I could find about springtime turkey hunting and of course Jim was always there with answers to my questions and advice from lessons learned the hard way. I had a great time and learned a lot. I am heading to the first turkey thread to post my seasons success story.
