Preseason Eyes Stay Peeled

by Jake Edson, F&W Media Outdoors editorWisconsin’s spring turkey season is still seven weeks away, but I can’t stop
thinking about it. Maybe that’s because for the past four days I’ve watched
every morning as a pair of over-anxious toms puff and pirouette in a snowy cow
pasture for a group of about 25 hens.

The presumptuous pair might be in for a rude awakening though, because we are forecast to receive 6 to 10 inches of snow starting this afternoon. I wonder if they’ll make it five days tomorrow, or if they’ll sulk back to their roost like a pair of sophomores who just realized they won’t be able to make the beach party because they don’t have driver’s licenses.
