What do deer hunters do in the spring? Many of them hit the turkey woods!

That’s what Grand View Outdoors did recently along the Mississippi River in Northern Illinois.

A three-day hunt at Shuhart Creek Whitetails with Hunter’s Specialties proved to be a challenging and rewarding adventure.

Four hunters scoured the surrounding 2,500 acres looking to fill the eight tags in their pockets. In the end, three tags were filled and fresh wild turkey breast was on the menu.

Josh Honeycutt, from the National Wild Turkey Federation, was the first to harvest a bird.

If you’re wondering how, or have never seen a Tom go field-to-table, watch Josh breast out his wild turkey

Spoiler alert! Josh and his fiancé had turkey nuggets a few days later.
