WILD TURKEY JOURNAL

Starting around the 1st of March (with camera gear in hand), Chad begins to visit traditional roost sites to video & study the vocabulary of the wild turkey.  Follow along as he takes you into the bedrooms of multiple flocks throughout the late winter & early spring.  You'll feel like you're sitting right under the roost with him as the turkeys wake & start their day!  As turkey seasons kicks off, you'll enjoy sharing our hunting adventures right up until the end of May!  The WILD TURKEY JOURNAL is one of the most unique outdoor journals you'll ever experience!!!
