Annual Maven Turkey Hunt

Sporadic bouts of warm weather during a Wyoming spring can give one itchy feet after a long winter of staring out frosty windows.  Over the winter months, we find ourselves splitting our time between being on the road and cooped up in the office. The cure for our itchy feet – a turkey hunt just outside the town of Hulett, the turkey capital of Wyoming. 
We spent four days in every variety of the Wyoming weather spectrum – hot and buggy to cold and snowy.  All the while we fell short and stayed just one step behind the turkeys.  However, just when we thought we’d go home empty handed, we made the seemingly impossible, possible on the last day.

Cade and Alex take a quick tour of the ranch before the hunt begins.
