What a monster!! This 50# turkey was shot on Witt’s Rio Vista Ranch East of Lamar on Hwy 196.
Southeastern Colorado offers numerous hunting venues, and you’ll find hunters of every genre in the area, but this is the first time in my memory that there’s been a turkey this size shot in the area. Either a testament to this turkey’s ability to find food in a drought ridden area, or testimonial for the amazing hunting opportunities you’ll find if you visit the area.
