Turkey history in MN

Postby dewey » April 14th, 2010, 4:28 am

Here is a Star Tribune article talking about the history of the wild turkey here in the land of the Vikings.

If you want to laugh or get mad a little bit read the comments at the bottom of the page, freaking liberals ragging on hunters for shooting the turkeys[:@][:@][:@].

most people i have talk to and hunting comes up ill tell them that i turkey hunt and i get this look. dewy do you get it. the look is like why hunt those you can just buy it at cub or any other grocrey store. what do you guys think

 
I get that look once in a while but for the most part I don't get that look because most of the people I associate with are hunters and hunters understand that it is not just about harvesting a turkey/deer/elk/pheasant/etc. as it is as much enjoying the great outdoors.
 
In 2008 when I started turkey hunting I didn't know anyone else that hunted the wily gobblers, however this spring I have a 10 year old nephew, and 4 other friends going with me to hunt turkeys.  I think once you go out into the woods and do a little calling and get a gobbler to call back that is when you are hooked.  It is unbelievable to have a gobbler gobble and you swear to god he is standing on your shoulders because it sounds so loud.
 
OK I am done.
