Since the days of our first segment, Spring Chronicles has placed a premium on bringing you footage that is up to date. Why? Because wild turkeys go through transition stages in their behavior; therefore, feedback from the field can make all the difference on your next hunt.

A few days ago Lt. Jeremy Harrill, a game warden from North Carolina, took a break from chasing poachers and focused his attention on strutters instead. Toms had finally decided they wanted to chase women. As the famous 70’s country singer Johnny Lee once said, “Looking for love in all the wrong places” will land you in a world of hurt.

Until today, we’ve never packed three kills into one episode. What you’re about to see happened just a few days ago. We think it qualifies as a “week of weeks” because it’s hard to do more killing than we did in just four days.
