I once saw a wild turkey pacing back and forth along a hog-wire fence, looking for a way through the 4-foot-tall barrier. In the time it took for me to drive by, the bird never figured out that with two flaps of its great wings, it could have easily sailed over the fence. You would think that such a bird would be easy prey for a hunter. And you would be wrong. Kansas' fall turkey hunting season is long, and turkeys are abundant across the state. However, because we have so many other great hunting opportunities - deer, waterfow, pheasants, and quail - fall turkey hunting is often overlooked. We have a strong spring turkey hunting tradition, but our fall tradition is underutilized.
