Sam's Turkey Hunt Recap

Sam's Turkey Hunt Recap

Show Notes

My wife shot her first turkey during her first ever turkey hunt this past week. The hunt took place in western Minnesota, on private land that was a mixture of rolling hills, woodlots, and hardwood swamps. Minnesota season structure saw some changes this year. Instead of each of the early seasons being draw only, each week was opened up to over-the-counter. That combined with many people being off of their normal work schedules, has caused a big spike in public land pressure. Therefore a hunt like this one was really enjoyable to have access to.

This podcast breaks down the details of the hunt and answers some of the questions that remained unanswered in the video, like why we didn't shoot a coyote that had snuck in to under 5 yards. The turkey season is far from over, with the vast majority of our hunts still yet to happen. I also discuss some of our favorite way to cook wild turkey legs.
