Outdoors Insider, with Dale Sunderlin: The Old Boss gobbler has sung

Well, that’s it, folks the old boss gobbler has sung. Spring turkey season 2013 is over. I hope many of you had a successful season and harvested a bird.

 It may not have been the boss gobbler of the woods but as I always say everybody has their vision of a trophy and as long as you’re happy with your harvest that’s all that counts.


Now what?

So now what? I could do a follow up column on mounting your beard and fantail. No, I think I’ve done that already, maybe next year just as a reminder.

I could tell you about my escapades this past spring; no I’m not one to do that. But just to give you a couple of high points, I did get the chance to hunt with our District 99 State Representative, John Patterson, on his first ever turkey excursion, he was an observer by the way. Also I did get to accompany my favorite youth, Mike Keenan Jr., into the woods and have it filmed by Wild Ohio TV. Those are just a couple of high points for me this past spring. Now if they would have been successful hunts you know I would have put something about them in my column but that’s why they call it huntin’ not gettin’.

I could remind you of the upcoming ACWCL Spring Banquet, talk a little fishin’ and show you the last of the photos I received, yep sounds like a plan.


ACWCL reminder

This year ACWCL Spring Banquet is going to held on June 1, 2013 at the Lenox Community Center just outside of Jefferson. Our “new Location,” the Lenox Community Center located at 2509 Lenox New Lyme Road, Jefferson. We’re only selling 200 tickets, so you might want to make that call to get tickets as soon as possible.

  • Tribe Not quite enough

    Although the Indians are still very much mathematically alive in the race for a postseason berth, they continue not to look like a playoff team. And when they have put a run together, they haven’t been able to maintain the habit of playing winning baseball.
