Present for this years turkey camp were Bill Gantic, Steve Chin, Nathan Blanchard, and Tom Karnuta. It was held during the weekend of April 29 - May 1, 2011 in the same location as last year, along the Arkansas River near Texas Creek. After an uneventful river crossing via canoe and a good hour hike into the backcountry we were at camp. That evening we headed out for a turkey scout and turned up nothing but wind and clouds. We headed out at at predawn Saturday in two groups hoping to outsmart the birds. The weather was perfect but all we found were a few decent sheds, nary a gobbler could we call up. Saturday evening a lite snow started falling around 9:30pm, and we awoke Sunday to several inches of the white stuff.
