Spring turkey season begins Monday. It is a great
time to be in the woods. I can’t stress enough how beneficial it is to
go out the night before and roost a gobbler. It is much easier in the
morning, if you know the location of an old longbeard. This ups the odds
of a successful hunt.
As always, please be safe in the turkey woods. Too
many times, accidents happen due to careless mistakes. Positively
recognize your target and never shoot at movements. I usually wear a
blaze orange cap, if I’m not in the process of calling a turkey. I’m a
firm believer in the fact that no gobbler is worth my life.
Sunday, May 1, will be youth day at the lower pond
near Rt. 16 at Calhoun County Park. Children must be accompanied by an
adult and have their own equipment. It will be bank fishing only, with a
one pole limit.
I am really looking forward to this event for the
children of Calhoun County. I was lucky enough to catch trout out of
these ponds roughly 20 years ago. Anyone wishing to volunteer their time
can contact me at
