Turkey Gallery

A stunning showcase of this amazing bird!

Wild turkeys are the big game of the small game world. Weighing upwards of 25 pounds, a mature bird is capable of supplying multiple meals for even a large family.

While many states have fall turkey hunting seasons, hunting for these birds is generally regarded as a spring activity. April or May brings on their breeding season. This is the time of year when males fill the woods with the sounds of their raucous and unmistakable gobbles, which serve to both attract females and challenge rival “gobblers,” or toms. If there’s a mistake that beginner turkey hunters make, it’s thinking that these boisterous birds are easy prey.
