Images from Turkey Hunting

Just sharing some various images from the opening weekend of Nebraska’s Spring Shotgun Wild Turkey Hunting Season for you to enjoy. Now, you’ll know why I love spring wild turkey hunting here in the Cornhusker State so much!

Sunrise in the woods.
Songbirds like this American Robin emerge.
A big tom veers toward hens shortly after landing in a clearing from his roost tree.
Jakes show up in the clearing.
A pair of wood ducks swim in the creek amid the turkey woods.
The bark of a large, old cottonwood tree.
Feathers of the gobbler up close.
Turkey primary wing feather laying in the woods. Most likely the result of a battle between males over females.
Success!
Another look at the gobbler and a different kind of 'bag shot' photo to consider taking with a harvested wild turkey.
