BIG RAPIDS\u00a0\u2014 It\u2019s season No. 3 for turkey hunters. But Big Rapids\u2019 Ron Kanitz won\u2019t soon forget No. 2. The third season for turkey hunters, May 4-31, is underway. The first season started April 20 followed by the second season April 27. Greg Nichols Sr., of Baldwin, had the first season but didn\u2019t find success. \u201cI had several turkeys in front of me,\u201d he said. \u201cI was too far out.\u201d Nichols recalled that it was wet and cold at the start of his season. \u201cOur season got shortened a bit,\u201d he said. \u201c(The latter seasons) should be better. The first season is usually my best. But it looks like the others might be better.\u201d Season No. 2 definitely favored Kanitz. \u201cThe second season was pretty good,\u201d he said. Kanitz\u2019s turkey had a 10-inch beard and he shot it on his property April 27. \u201cIt was windy in the morning,\u201d he said.\u201dI saw some but couldn\u2019t get them to come. So went back in the house and had lunch and decided to go back in the afternoon. Around (3 p.m.) I heard a gobble and two of them came in.\u201d Kanitz tested his calling skills. \u201cIn the morning its just too windy,\u201d he said. \u201cIn the afternoon, it calmed right down. I started calling again and they showed up. The one he was with is still running around. It was an interesting day and turned out nice.\u201d The last season goes until May 31. \u201cIt should be pretty good,\u201d Kanitz said. \u201cThe hens are still walking around and the toms are still looking.\u201d Jason Donley, of Trigger Time Outfitters in Big Rapids, indicated hunters have generally had success. He added both the first and second seasons went well. \u201cThe third season has started out well,\u201d he said. Vic Havens of Frank\u2019s Sporting Goods in Morley indicated hunters have been bringing in a good number of turkeys in the early portions of the general season.
