The landowner got me started in turkey hunting. Met him about 8 years ago. He invited to come up to his place and eliminate some deer. Boy, was I in heaven. At that time it wasn't unusual to see 12-24 deer in a mile around his place. Thought I had died and gone to heaven. As you all know the custom, share your take with the landowner. Except he detested deer meat. But he let it well known that wild turkey was his fav. Never hunted turkey before but was willing to try to fill his requirement to his tastebuds. From there, the rest is history.
I have always asked if it's ok to hunt deer in the fall and turkeys in the spring and fall on his land, and the answer I get is "don't forget I like wild turkey".
