On the Trail with Dean Bortz: Turkey hunting and all that other jazz

This one’s going to be less about turkey hunting and more about what a person might do when the Wisconsin weather takes the vinegar out of the hunter. This is the first year in a long time where I did not kill a turkey in Zone 7 during the first season, where I mostly hunt in Vilas, Oneida, Iron, Ashland, and Price counties.
