Louisiana’s turkey season draws to a close Sunday, May 5. Shooting hours are one-half hour before sunrise to one-half hour after sunset. There’s been a mixed bag here this year, mainly because of the weather. I hope you have gotten to go get in the woods and capture a big gobbler. It seems like a lot of hunters had gobblers and got them close, but they hadn’t separated from the hens until later in the season. Guys hunting in the bottoms found most of their turkey habitat underwater for the most part.
We’ve had a good season and got to go on some great out of state trips. Lindsey and I got to go on some great hunts in Iowa. She killed a huge turkey. It weighed 28- 1/2 pounds. It was a monster.
We had several gobblers get right up close to us in the woods. We had one that must have gobbled 250 times, but it never would walk out from behind the little ridge that kept us from seeing it. That was pretty much the story of the hunt except for the big boy. That made it worth it, for sure.
Be safe out there. And remember us for all your turkey hunting and other outdoor needs.
