Because of the deep snow and bitter cold coupled with limited finances, and as usual, no help at all from anyone like the Michigan DNR, which is supposedly responsible for the management of our wild turkeys, there’s a good chance that turkey hunters will see many fewer wild turkeys out there this spring, despite the best hatch in more than 20 years last spring.

No one wants to see our wild turkeys disappear from northern Michigan. We are all hoping for an early spring, and hopeful for high survival.

With that in mind, you will see several of us at the various outdoor shows around the state in the next couple of months, as well as at the annual MWTHA Wild Turkey Rendezvous in Baldwin.

We look forward to seeing you there!
