As I look out my office window, velvet-antlered bucks parade through the same swamp grass where a longbeard strutted just 1 month ago. It’s bittersweet. But before we completely transition from turkeys to whitetails, we’ll take one more look back at spring.
The Feather Trail Photo Contest featured here at HuntingClub.com was tremendously successful. With more than 550 photo entries, the gallery was packed full of truly impressive shots. But the five you see below received the most votes from NAHC members. From those, the NAH editors chose their one favorite.
The winning photo was submitted by NAHC Member Sean Zimmerman from Pennsylvania. His late-March trail cam photo shows a bold longbeard strutting in the snow (with another strutter barely visible behind him). It’s an encouraging image that depicts the tenacity of turkeys and gives hunters a hint of what’s to come during the spring showdown.
Congrats, Sean! We’re sending you a prize package with $575 worth of great gear from our generous sponsors: Avian-X, Knight & Hale, S4Gear, Weaver and Winchester.
To everyone else, keep your eyes open … another killer photo contest is in the works!
