BJT Contributor Talks Turkey
Turkey Men, a new book by BJT Outdoor Adventures columnist Thomas R. Pero, profiles six extraordinary hunters who have killed a wild turkey in all 49 states where they thrive. The species’ abundance is one of the great wildlife restoration success stories of our time, says Pero, whose book employs interviews and photos of the turkey hunters to document their quest for the U.S. Wild Turkey Super Slam.
“This is a rarified handful of obsessed outdoorsmen,” Pero notes. “I did the calculation and discovered that 235 times as many people have reached the top of Mount Everest.”
