And even if you're not hunting those warm destinations, simply knowing that turkey seasons are open there should be enough to see you through the remnants of winter.
Soon, hunters across Alabama, Mississippi and the Low Country of South Carolina will be afield. And before long, April will arrive, and seasons across much of the country will open.
So here's to our brethren in southern Florida and way out in the Pacific. May the birds gobble well and your aim be true. Soon, we'll all be immersed in our favorite activity.
Welcome, turkey season.
