Turkey Hunt
Body: 

It wasn't that long ago that there were no wild turkeys in Vermont. But in the late 1950's and early 60's The Vermont Department of Fish & Wildlife instituted the "Trap and Transport Program," trapping wild turkeys in New York State and relocating them to Vermont. The program proved very successful and today wild turkey populations have expanded across the entire state. In this segment, host Lawrence Pyne and turkey hunter Buvy Gamache venture out on the last day of turkey season 2001 in search of an elusive tom.

Youth Turkey Hunt
Body: 

One of the best ways to learn the skills of hunting is to learn in the field from an experienced hunter. Vermont's first youth turkey hunt was held the weekend of April 27 and 28, 2002. This special weekend encouraged experienced hunters to go out with a youngster and share the skills that are required for a successful outdoor experience. We accompanied a young hunter and his mentor to witness the experience of a first hunt.

Fall Turkey Hunt
Body: 

There's nothing like calling in a big gobbler during the spring wild turkey season. But fall turkey hunts can be every bit as exciting. The tactics and calling are quite different, however, as the birds are more interested in food than mating. Mature male turkeys most likely won't respond to a hen call in the fall. What they will respond to is the call of other members of the flock that have been separated from the main group. This is where the dogs come in. In Vermont, dogs may be used in fall hunts to flush birds and break up the flock. The dog must also be concealed and remain calm during the calling, which adds yet another challenge level to the day. All of these factors make coming home with a Thanksgiving gobbler a rare event. But with good scouting, breakup by the dog and excellent calling skills, it can go a long way toward putting a wild turkey on the table. Host Lawrence Pyne goes fall turkey hunting with Marc Brown, Steve Hickoff and his turkey dog Midge.
