Michigan turkey hunter Andrew Tolliver shared this story of a recent hard-work turkey hunt. Here's his recollection from the April 19, 2017 hunt in Bath, Mich.

By Andrew Tolliver


It was a rainy morning here in Michigan and I'd been out for about five hours when I saw him.

I had to sneak down to the stream to get a better shot because he was stubborn and wouldn't come any closer until he thought the hen was moving closer.

Shot it at 70 yards, which is way too far, but he flopped. Hard work paid off!
