National Wild Turkey Federation spokesperson Mark Hatfield talks about favorite places to hunt turkeys and with one of his favorite people, but doesn't reveal a whole lot about his turkey calling skills. Some of my favorite places to hunt are out in the West where you get the big open landscapes. Seabirds, hear birds, but man, It's so much more enjoyable just to be able to have birds in front of you and to see that excitement on other people's faces that I've never seen it before. That's the special part about it. I've got a ten year old, we've got a trip planned next spring for me to go up to take him to Turkey on in Kentucky, where I kind of grew up, Turkey. So that's going to be pretty special, too. But I've been able to kill a lot of birds. I think what I'm not a good caller, but I can kill turkeys. It's just fun to get out there and experience it, hear it and have the failures and have successes. Speaker1: All right. As the national director of conservation services with the National Wild Turkey Federation, certainly, Mark Hatfield, you must have a call handy. Speaker2: I do have box calls sitting around my desk most of the time for sure. But yeah, it's my go to’s are slate calls always have a diaphragm in my mouth, especially during turkey season. But man, if it's a state call as well, probably hunting those western birds. You can get loud and get aggressive and not scare them off. Too bad. Speaker1: Aggressive Western birds who love to fight.
