Our guest today is Carter Heath, Regional Director for the New England and New York chapters of the National Wild Turkey Federation and longtime guest and friend of the show. He’s also bi-lingual, speaking both English as well as wild turkey, in which he’s quite fluent. Not just at cutting and gobbling, but even in Jake calls and gentle hen purrs too. The man simply exudes wild turkey vibes as if he were wrapped in a turkey atmosphere. And he gets to share this passion as his profession, which is just a beautiful thing to witness in a person.
Today we thought it would be fun to talk about getting started turkey hunting — start to finish — so this interview focuses on everything you need to know to get going. From getting your hunting license to selecting a weapon and strategy, to turning your bird — or hopefully birds — into delicious meals.
The turkey rut is just about to kick off, and we couldn’t be more excited for a little spring thunder!
For now, enjoy the gobbling, cutting, and gentle purrs of Carter Heath. He’s been a significant part of the incredible interest we’ve been experiencing around the spring turkey hunt in recent years, with its rapidly expanding hunter participation and especially the growing interest we’ve seen from new hunters.
We hope he’ll inspire you to get involved if you aren’t already and to join the National Wild Turkey Federation this year. It’s just $35 a year, comes with a great magazine subscription, and your money goes to support very real and tangible habitat restoration projects and wild turkey conservation efforts. Join us in becoming a member, whether you hunt or not, because we need all hands on deck to preserve our hunting heritage and to conserve the wild turkey!
