Are you starting to feel the urge to break out in a little “cluck” and “gobble” every once in a while? Do you find yourself walking around and suddenly holding your shoulders back, holding your chin up and poking your face forward and doing a little strut? That’s normal if you are a turkey hunter. It’s time for turkey hunters to start getting that little turkey twitch. It isn’t that long until the season is here for and that’s about the only cure for this strange behavior.
It’s high time to get your gear into shape and fill in your missing equipment. If there is anything you need, don’t hesitate to come by and check out our turkey hunting supplies at Simmons’ Sporting Goods in Bastrop. In Louisiana, here are 2021 season dates and zones. Plan and prepare now and enjoy it more later!
