More than a hunt....With Marc Drewek
Recently I had the privilege to go on a Merriams turkey hunt in Wyoming. The scenery was gorgeous and filled with wildlife. The ranch I was hunting was loaded with Whitetail deer, a few Elk, mountain lions and of course turkeys.
The Merriams is a sub-species of the Eastern wild turkey which we have here in Wisconsin. These particular turkeys are much more vocal; travels in larger flocks and have distinct white markings on their back and tail feathers. It is common to see flocks with 50 to 100 birds in it.
I visited Devils tower National monument before the hunt. Another highlight of the trip was a 23 mile trip around the ranch on a four wheeler. The backside of the ranch had a direct view of Devils tower. Although I did have an opportunity to connect on a bird I didn’t make the shot with the bow. But being able to hunt in the shadow of a National Monument and the trip around the ranch made the trip a memorable one. Taking the opportunity to visit some of the local attractions can make your trip much more than a hunt.
