With spring turkey season a few months away, I was wondering how many die-hard gobbler hunters there are in Colorado? If you are anything like me you are starting to wipe the dust off calls and decoys getting ready for the opener. This year I'm hoping to chase mountain merriams. They always seem to be a challenge compared to rio or rio crosses that hang out in more open river bottom country. Good luck to all that hit the hills!

I live to hunt birds. Hunting around here is tough because of the closed roads and high pressure on toms. But that spring, one morning, was truly amazing. I chase them with stickbows, learned how to hunt pressured toms and henned up toms. Try to chase them in as many states as possible.

I love wondering the woods in the spring, picking up antlers and looking for birds!

Hoping to draw a tag in Colorado and shoot one with my recurve or longbow. Ken

You'll enjoy the mountain Merriam's hunt....a true classic, and possibly my favorite. Osceola's in Florida swamp country, with the breeze carrying the fragrance of orange blossoms from nearby groves is good, too.

Obsessed with Colorado merriums.. maybe because it comes around right after months of 90+ hour weeks preparing tax returns or maybe because it's like elk hunting in the spring..

It sure would be nice to hunt Osceola's in a warm spot in the spring! It would also be nice hunting giant Gould's with their gorgeous white plumage in AZ or Mexico. I'm not sure if my budget could handle those 2 species? I've been so busy hunting rios and merriams in the spring that I haven't ever hunted easterns. The grass is always greener!
