It is on! The month of February with it’s cold wet days will end tomorrow night and March will roar in like the Lion bringing spring weather and gobbling turkeys! At least that is what I am praying for! February is not bad for outdoor sports, Rabbit hunting, quail hunting, squirrel hunting, predator hunting Hog hunting.
I mean, it is a real jackpot for hunters to enjoy as they wind down from the late deer season and get to thinking about strutting turkeys and bedding bass! Not to mention those sweet tasting crappie that will soon be rising up from the winter deep water and biting with more agression than they have shown in Months!
March and April are two of my favorite months for time spent afield chasing gobblers and settn the hook on some great fish! The foliage starts to “green up” the temps start to warm up and we can dump those winter blues along with the jackets and caps!
Last Night, the Elmore County NWTF held it’s annual banquet and as a long time committee member I was very happy to participate and see a great turnout of people who were not shy about having a good time and spending some money in support of the NWTF and our efforts to raise money for the betterment of the Wild Turkey and the habitat for all of the creatures in the great outdoors, except for predators and hogs!
Tomorrow night is the Montgomery Chapter’s banquet and I hope we will see as many folks turnout and spend out to take advantage of the very unique, one of a kind outdoor items that can only be bought or won at an NWTF banquet! For more info, check the NWTF State page for Alabama and it will list the details for the Montgomery baquet TOMORROW NIGHT! COME ON OUT!
I had a number of hunters reporting some great rabbit hunts and quail hunts around the state this week. Both of these game species offer some of the very best in table-fare and if you ever get the chance to dine on either, don’t miss your chance!
Alabama Spring turkey- youth weekend is NEXT weekend! if you have not decided to take a youngster in to the spring turkey woods for a “first crack” at an old spring gobbler before they get spooked by all us adult “turkey nuts”. I urge you to take a child turkey hunting next weekend! I plan to take my granddaughter for a chance at a big gobbler and then, Saturday Afternoon, I will be giving a turkey hunting seminar at Bass Pro Shops in Prattville in the early afternoon. Come on by and I will tell you how we did and share some of my turkey hunting tricks from my more than half a century racking up gobblers around Alabama and other states.
Until next week,
“YELPING ON THE PRACTICE CALLS!”
