Off in the distance in a remote and private farm is a large flock of wild Turkeys. My hunting friend has been wanting to share his forest secrets for some time now and I finally made some time to head down to Southern Maryland.
Arriving to the broad and wide fields, large black birds dotted the landscape. Evidently, Turkeys are really quite alert and quite shy. So parking behind a barn, we began to slowly stalk them.
I love my friend, he’s such a woodsman, complete with camo clothing, and a white beard reminisce of the Duck Dynasty boys and ZZ Top. Holding a handmade turkey call in hand, we stalked and creeped along the ground to try to get a half way decent vantage point.
There were two males with plenty of hens.
An experience certainly different than usual for me. Stalking in the woods, bushwacking and searching for all sorts of wildlife.
