Jeff Schafer of Burlington Northern Santa Fe covers his ears as a coal train roars through Wadena Monday morning. Regulations demand that trains sound their powerful horns as they approach city crossings. Schafer was running a railroad tie inserter at the Second Steet crossing in downtown Wadena.
One of the greatest sounds to a turkey hunter is a tom gobbling up a storm. It rates in the same class of thrill as a flock of bluebills screaming into the decoy set. That is the kind of thrill I was after a couple weeks back when I headed into the wood with an owl call. It had been blowing all day but around 7 the wind dropped and we suddenly had a quiet spring evening. Tom turkeys will not come to an owl call but if he hears the call he will let out with a gobble, giving away his location. The plan was perfect but the results that evening were strictly negative.
