R.U.T. Adventures: Western WI Public Land Turkey Tour

AJ Gall

Here we go! Wisconsin was entering its 5th weeklong turkey period of 2018 and we had a date with some wild birds in the hills of southwestern Wisconsin. There were plenty of tags leftover for period 5 in Zone 1, so a few of us from Legendary Whitetails decided to meet up with The Hunting Public crew to send the last stop of their 2018 Turkey Tour out with a bang!

The Legendary R.U.T. Wagon served as the camp HQ and kept things pretty comfortable for the crew…or as comfortable as you can get with 3-hours of sleep. It did make for a pretty darn nice midday napping station though! Those Cam-O-Cots are a thing of beauty when it comes to cramming 4 guys into a trailer full of hunting and camera gear.

As for the turkey hunting action on the trip, check out the two videos below. Some lucky #longbirds got away, but some didn’t!
