I spent a few days living on my camp-boat last week on Truman Lake. It is a hard-topped pontoon boat, custom-built for me with no furniture on it and attachable canvas-type cover with screened windows and doors built in. On board I have attached small cabinets and a big box that holds cooking utensils and sleeping bags and air mattresses.

The spring turkey season is one of the most exciting three weeks of the year for me as an outdoorsman, and untold numbers of other Missouri turkey hunters. Spring is a long awaited reprieve from the grip of winter and a grand enjoyment of the newest of life that arrives with spring. Sharing a turkey hunt with someone else is a remarkable way to get to know them.
