Talkin’ Turkey on TV

Nebraska’s popular spring shotgun wild turkey hunting season occupies center stage on my outdoor television segment on Omaha’s WOWT 6 News this week. That’s because the spring shotgun turkey opener is this Saturday, April 12th! I don’t know about you but I am so pumped up for it! Spring wild turkey hunting is one of my favorite outdoor sports/activities. There’s nothing like it!


I’ll be offering a safety reminder or two plus few hunting tips for those of you going turkey hunting this spring. A slate call should be in your turkey hunting arsenal!


WOWT 6’s Weekly Outdoor Report airs LIVE Thursday at 6 p.m. CST during the sportscast with Ross Jernstrom or Greg Ortiz. If you miss it, you can see it on Saturday morning later in the station’s hour-long, 8 a.m. CST newscast. In addition, video replays of the segment are available on the station’s website here. From all of us associated with the WOWT 6 Sports Machine, thanks for watching!


Oh, did I mention how absolutely gorgeous spring sunsets can be from the turkey hunting blind?
