My 2013 Nebraska spring wild turkey hunting season is complete. Took Gobbler #3 Saturday evening hunting in the woodlands of northern Douglas County with Son Zach Wagner. Thanks for shooting the pics, Zach!
What a beautiful bird! Since it didn’t have much white on it, Zach and I declared this turkey a term we acquired from the Daryl Bauer Family — “The Chocolate Tom.” Here’s a different perspective and a closer look at the bird.
If you’re curious, according to Jeff Lusk, our Game and Parks Upland Game Program Manager, most likely this wild turkey is an Eastern hybrid sub specie. It certainly is a unique, cool-looking bird!
Alright Zach, enough turkey hunting photos, now you take to the creek bottom woods to look for morel mushrooms. I’ll shoot a pic of you!
