BIG RAPIDS - Turkey season has ended, and it seems reports of success were rather mixed. "On a personal level, I was trying to get a tom for one of my kids," DNR wildlife biologist Pete Kailing said. "We tried calling a gobbler. They'd come at a distance, but not very close. The weather was good. I didn't have reports of a lot of people hunting. It warmed up after that brutal spring. "The season was decent for opportunity. Hunting was probably above average for the whole season. Hunters can go to our website and submit comments on how the hunt went." More people hunt during the third season which covers May, Kailing noted. "Year in and year out, the earlier season (in April) give better opportunities. The birds have been affected less. Turkeys become visible during the season but are more experienced in avoiding decoys and hunters who call. Birds that have been hunted on public lands are pretty (wary) by the end of May." Hunting remains basically quiet from now until various seasons open in September. Bear complaints continue, but there haven't been many Kailing noted. "Right now there are enough items for them to get naturally without relying on bird feeders," he said. "If people don't want bears, they should take away all the food items. People get accustomed to bears all the time. The first time you see one, you want to tell the world about it because it is so unusual. "But they can be a nuisance. As long as you don't feed them, they'll go back to the wild."
