It all began on a cool autumn evening, with a turkey and an unlikely cooking tool – a humble trash can. The sun was setting, painting the sky in hues of pink and orange, and a group of friends sat around, debating the best way to cook a turkey. While everyone had their traditional methods, one adventurous soul proposed, “Why not with a trash can?” Eyebrows raised and intrigued murmurs filled the air. Thus, the birth of the most memorable culinary experiment our group had ever embarked upon.

The makeshift oven crafted from a trash can turned out to be an incredible success. The turkey was impeccably juicy, the flavors were deeply infused, and the meat fell off the bone. That evening, amidst the joy of great company and delicious food, an idea was ignited.


As the talk of our trash can turkey spread among our friends and beyond, we realized that there was so much more to turkey than just the cooking process. Our curiosity led us on a journey – a turkey hunting adventure that took us deep into the woods, teaching us about the art of tracking, the patience required, and the profound connection between man, nature, and bird.

Our passion became a quest, one that we wanted to share with the world. Hence, the birth of – our blog dedicated to everything turkey hunting. From the soft cooing calls in the early morning hours to the thrill of spotting that perfect bird, we’ve documented it all. Over the years, our platform has evolved into a comprehensive guide, covering not just hunting techniques, but also conservation efforts, equipment reviews, stories from fellow hunters, and of course, a myriad of recipes – with our trash can method taking center stage.
