Turkey season is over and changes to time for fishing and catching things like holdover stocked rainbow trout.

It is a transitional time for most sportsmen and women. It saddens me to admit, being an afflicted turkey hunter who enjoys almost every morning of the season watching the sun come up in hopes that a turkey will gobble, that no matter if you are ready or not the bell rings when the season ends.

When it is over, it’s over. But don’t fret, soon enough fall turkey seasons will open as well as the chance to go afield for turkey during the winter’s Mountain Heritage Season. I am truly excited and looking forward to them both. Again, please forgive me, turkeys occupy my brain all year long. But, I digress.
