Spring turkey hunting season is about to officially kick off in Iowa. Hunters all over the state are airing out their blinds, getting the proper paperwork around and of coarse dusting off those turkey calls for a few practice rounds.

We ran across this amusing video of a little 2-year-old boy that doesn't even need a turkey call to draw in the big gobblers. Check out this hilarious video we've dubbed, 'The Turkey Whisperer'.

The Iowa Department of Natural Resources has released a helpful video to help get your ready for the season. Here's Wildlife Biologist Jim Coffeey with some helpful tips for this year's spring turkey hunting season.
