Turkey Hunting Whether it's spring or fall doesn't matter to this bunch. Great tips on calling, bustin flocks, using blinds and more.

Default First Merriam

I was fortunate to take my first Merriam turkey in Wyoming. 8 1/2” beard, 3/4” spurs, 19lbs. I also caught a 17” rainbow about an hour later. Lots of critters out and about in the spring.
