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
