Going to Roost by Jim Bulger
I hope those of you who enrolled in Turkey School had some success, either in a harvest or the experience of a great time in the field chasing the bearded ones. The articles were written to give the novice a starting point in Colorado. Even after 30 years of spring turkey hunting experience, I still see each season as a new start; an opportunity to see Mother Nature wake the world from its winter slumber with an explosion of green leaves, flowers and the eternal hope of a new beginning.
The last lesson of the spring season is about treasuring the time you spend in the field; time spent with family and friends and time spent in the greatest place on earth – the woods in spring. It is dedicated to some of the ladies who took to the field this year to experience the challenge of a spring hunt.
