This nice-sized Jake was a great harvest for the spring turkey season.
 

Not so talkative turkeys

Here in the Pennsylvania woods there are few pastimes more anticipated than hunting season. During this time of year, there is but one primary hunting season to be enjoyed: spring turkey. With the end of May came the end of 2019’s spring gobbler season, and like many other hunters, I found myself blessed with some wild poultry for the freezer.

Animal tracking

DINGMANS FERRY, PA — Ever wonder what kind of animal left behind those tracks? Does all the rustling in the brush make you curious?

The weight of the turkey that left these tracks, in combination with snow conditions, may have produced the interesting circular pattern. Tracks laid in snow expand as the snow melts, providing clues as to how recently the animal was there. 

Tackling tracking in the snow

The first snows have dusted the Upper Delaware River Region. Other than giving everyone something to crow about on social media, some areas saw just enough accumulation to provide early opportunities for tracking animals and learning more about their “hidden” lives.

Tips on smoking

Not every cut of meat from a harvest, or the store, is the same. Some are tougher than others. Tough meat can be ground into burger, slow roasted, or even turned into stew meat. Another way to make the meat better is to smoke it.
