This week we cover the 5th season of the 2012 Wisconsin Turkey Season. Greg and Pat are at it yet again hassling birds in South Central Wisconsin. The hard work and dedication pays off as Pat is able to harvest his 4th bird of the year. Then we take you to the eastern part of the state as Jason Lisowe was able to successfully self film his first ever bow-kill!! Jason’s hunt is unbelievable and you won’t want to miss it!
This week on BMGOutdoors.com’s semi-live turkey series we join Greg Haak, Pat Raab, and Jason Lisowe as they attempt to harvest some tough late season birds in Wisconsin. Jason ends up filling his Wisconsin tag and decides to try his luck with our neighbors to the south on his new lease near Pike County, IL. This webisode shows some of the difficulties that can come with filming more specifically self filming hunts effectively. Keep in mind this is our first year filming hunts and with that comes a huge learning curve. Also remember we are average people who ultimately love hunting; our main goal is to fill tags, getting that kill shot and being able to relive and share the experience makes it that much more special!
We're halfway through the 2012 Wisconsin Turkey Season. So far the crew has been fortunate enough to consistently put birds on the ground. As the season moves along the turkeys have become more leery of decoy setups, less vocal and harder to get in range. We've been chasing the majority of these birds through multiple seasons and they're beginning to learn our best moves; especially after Greg Haak shot at and missed nearly every tom in Southern Wisconsin on last weeks Webisode. But we didn't let that slow us down this week. We just had to hunt harder, become more mobile and put ourselves where the birds wanted to be. This week watch as Paul Meier connects on a big tom and Randy Mitchell is able to harvest his first bird ever on his first try at this turkey hunting thing!

With the first season of the 2012 Turkey Season in the books the BMGOutdoors crew was hard at it for Season Two. The second season really shows how scouting can make a huge difference in how successful you can be chasing these elusive birds. Some people had success right off the bat while others worked through the highs and lows many of you can relate to. Join on us we take you through Mitch Kahl, Brandon Hirsch and Greg Haak’s seasons. Trust me you won’t want to miss the last hunt on this webisode. Be sure to let us know what you think.
The spring of 2012 has finally arrived and with it came unusually warm weather. This time of year the BMGOutdoors crew shifts our focus from deer to turkeys. There's not much that gets the heart pounding quite like the sound of a big old Tom gobbling! This weeks webisode takes you through the first of Wisconsin's six spring turkey seasons. Heading into the hunt we were unsure how the extremely warm March would affect the birds but we quickly find out! Join us as Tyler Heise and Pat Raab lay the smack-down, a mere hours apart, on some nice Wisconsin Tom's!
Fall turkey hunting doesn't get as much hype as the spring season, but we like to get tags in case we get an opportunity while bow hunting. A couple weeks back Brandon and Greg went to move one of Greg's stands, so Greg took his bow because he's seen turkeys there on a regular basis. As they walked towards the woods and rounded the corner of the corn field they spotted a hen sunning her self on the edge of the woods. With the corn still standing they decided to hide in the corn and make a stalk. Here's how it played out!
