Remember the episode of Schitt's Creek where they take David turkey hunting? I think I'm more prepared than he was, but perhaps not.
This episode is about me getting ready to hunt wild turkey for the first time in my life. I have next to no idea what calls I need or how to use them, and that's just the bare minimum of what I need to know.
It's about time I had Mark Hall on my show, and the timing is perfect as I begin to get ready for April 15, the opening day of the Merriam's Turkey season in BC. Mark is the host of the Hunter Conservationist Podcast and has been pursuing these birds in the hills around his home for more than two decades. He also offers a masterclass on hunting turkeys in the ponderosa pine ridges of southern BC. That course is available here. Mark's knowledge of turkey biology and behaviour, and how to put them on his table, is matched only by his enthusiasm.
The two of us will be hiking a pre-dawn rocky mountain ridge on opening day, shock-calling for roosted turkeys, and I simply cannot wait. There is much to prepare and this episode goes a long way to help with that task.
Part two of this episode will come out on Monday, Feb 13, 2023. Big announcement coming up shortly on a new way to reward subscribers with free Food Afield gear! Support the Food Afield Podcast, become a member subscriber today!

I am so stoked to get to go turkey hunting for the first time ever! April 15th I’ll be on a ridge top somewhere in the Rockies. Listen in as my guide, Mark, helps me prepare!
