Every spring starts the same. Big plans for habitat improvements and food plot preparations, only to be quickly “Interrupted” by the sickness that has infected us all: turkey hunting!

This year was no different than the others for Casey. Mowing a corn plot and burning native warm season grasses in preparation for the coming year took a back seat as turkey season started in Illinois. It didn’t take long to put the first bird on the ground during the 1st season. From there, it was off to Iowa for a yearly tradition of a hunt with Tom. The hunt ended with a great 2 year old longbeard taken in a clover food plot.

Now that another successful turkey hunting season has come and gone, it time to get back to business and get the farms in prime shape for the fall!
