Travis Benes, manager of the Choctaw Hunting Lodge (www.choctawhuntinglodge.com) setting up to call wild turkeys.

This week, Luke visits with his friend Travis Benes, manager of The Choctaw Hunting Lodge (www.choctawhuntinglodge.com) in Southeastern Oklahoma and discusses a recent hunt Eastern wild turkey.  Luke has hunted Rio Grande turkeys for many years in Texas  but his experience with  Eastern "woods birds" is limited. Luke wasn't able to tag a bird on this hunt but he did have a couple of excellent opportunities, saw lots of turkeys and learn a great deal about hunting them from Travis. The majority of these veteran hunters' "talk" is about turkey hunting, but Travis also discusses some awesome whitetail hunting opportunities available on the extensive Choctaw tribal lands. The lodge also offers a great fishing get away in a fully furnished cabin tucked away in the woods with an awesome fishing lake nearby.
