Opening day for turkey season here in North Carolina is this Saturday. The youth have gotten an early start with a week long youth season this year and it sounds like some youngsters have filled some tags. We have been scrambling to get road access to our land after a rather late season ice storm toppled a lot of trees across the central part of the state. We still have a few roads on our property that is blocked but for the most part we are ready for turkey season. The weather is looking pretty good for the opener so hopefully it will great day. The turkey vest is packed and ready, the therma cell is ready and I’m like a kid on Christmas Eve. Turkey hunting is about my favorite hunt and I’m excited about calling a gobbler in. Good luck to everyone that is hitting the woods and fields for a thunder chicken…… and be safe.
