Default Colorado Gobbler

Hey everyone, just wanted to share this photo with you. I hope everyone is enjoying spring and finding reasons to get outside!

I filled my spring turkey tag this past Sunday around 8 am. I was hunting a place just outside of Ridgway Colorado at about 8,500 feet. This bird was very talkative and came in hot. My Dad dropped his bird the day before (opening morning) at a spot East of Montrose Colorado. Both areas were public land. Good luck to everyone else out in the turkey woods!

Nice bird. Merriams right? I got this Rio last year in Yuma County:



I find myself in TX this spring but will probably take a Rio this fall when I come back for deer season. Fortunately I have access to a big ranch with lots of them.

Nice bird! I went to Silt this past weekend and I didn't get a single call back all weekend or see a single bird. Hopefully this weekend will work out.

Nice looking bird! Yeah, both my bird and my Dad's are Merriams. I keep saying that I'm going to go to the other side of the state for a Rio.

I was curious how this season would go with it already being so warm. There is no snow at any of the places I usually hunt but I thought the birds were more talkative than they usually are, or usually are for me? More than the average amount of guys I know killed their birds on opening day around the Western Slope. An odd season around here but in the hunters favor it seems? Good luck on getting into the birds! I hope you drop one!
