Chris Ellis: Putting a wrap on WV’s spring turkey hunting
At the time of penning this article, I was sitting alongside my son Jack at an airport terminal awaiting a flight back to the West Virginia hills of our home. A glance out the airport window revealed the front range of the Rocky Mountain and most all peaks were covered with snow.
The reason for our travels was our annual pilgrimage to chase a game bird - the wild turkey.
This year, we accepted an invitation to the grain country of western Nebraska to hunt turkeys on the flat lands filled with cows, wheat and alfalfa hay. Although void of the hardwoods we were accustomed to, the wide open, prairie terrain and amount of game seen made for an excellent adventure.
