Here’s our list of the best turkey hunting stories from 2017.
Remember back in the spring, when we were all turkey hunting as much as we could?
Yeah, it seems like a long time ago to us, too. But that’s all the more reason to wrap up 2017 with a great group of lists focusing on the best of the best from the whole year.
We’re wrapping up 2017 by sharing some of the best and most-viewed posts, videos, and stories from 2017 and sharing them in our Wide Open Spaces 12 Days of Top Stories countdown.
Here are the highlights from the year’s worth of turkeys.

4. No Turkeys Needed
This video doesn’t involve a turkey, but the video of the turkey hunter who encountered a bobcat definitely had our attention.
5. Turkey Prank
This was one of our favorites from 2017.
This video is of a young man I took on the youth hunt in Arksnsas a couple years ago. This was his first Turkey so listen to what I convince him he is supposed to do when the bird is flopping. He was a great sport about it and we made some memories (and video) that will last a lifetime!!
