Less than a week to go until the first segment of Iowa’s spring turkey season begins — The countdown is on. I’ve been playing with the birds off and on since mid-February, and this morning was the best yet. Although toms were actively gobbling on the roost, things cranked up even more once they hit the ground. Their close range rattling raised my pulse rate and really made me anxious to get back into the woods with bow & arrow.
