Turkey season opened this week. A thoughtful hint is to hunt all day. Birds often become active again in mid-morning, after the hens have moved off from their early morning rendezvous.

On opening day, that was my strategy to take a Nicholas County thunderchicken that sported a nine-inch beard. Early morning was uneventful for me, but around 10 a.m., I found my gobbler all alone, lonesome, and easily responding to my sly calls.

Youth Day at Calhoun County Park will be Sunday, May 1. Children under eight will fish from 10 to 11 a.m.; ages eight to 10, 11 a.m. to noon; ages 10 to 12, noon to 1 p.m.; ages 12 to 14, 1 to 2 p.m.; and ages 14 to 17, 2 to 3 p.m.; and after that any adult may fish. There is a one pole limit, with bank fishing only. Adults may assist, but not fish while youths are fishing. Children must be accompanied by an adult. All West Virginia game laws apply. Anyone 15 or older will need a trout stamp to fish for trout.

Volunteers are needed. Contact me at I will not be able to attend, as I have job requirements. I feel that it is a proud day in Calhoun County to once again be fishing for trout within its boundaries.
