Mcgraw, NY (PressExposure) November 21, 2008 -- Joyner Outdoor Media announces the publication of Tales from the Turkey Woods: Mornings of My Better Days, by Mike Joyner.
From the author of Hills of Truxton: Stories and Travels of a Turkey Hunter comes Tales from the Turkey Woods: Mornings of My Better Days, an inspired collection of vignettes regarding the pursuit of wild turkeys, one of Mother Nature's most unpredictable birds. In this sequel, acclaimed nature author and outdoorsman Mike Joyner provides an altogether inspired account of his mornings spent on the trail of wild turkeys in the hinterlands of the Northeast.
From opening day to elusive pursuits, the author's hunting narratives are action-packed and entertaining. Each story seems to put life into its proper perspective a place where the memories of one's father blends with Mother Nature. Where rain and wind walk hand in hand with a late summer breeze or an early fall frost and the break of day is a welcome reminder of what is important. The excitement, the splendor, the rawness of the hunt and the glory of the final moments is not often without humor and personal insight close at hand. The fact is: among friends and comrades in the very deepest parts of the woods, a person can learn a lot from hunting the wily wild turkey.
"Spring mornings in the turkey woods is something that everyone should experience. It sharpens your senses, and sooths the soul. Time spent in the turkey woods has made other aspects of my life that much more rewarding."-Mike Joyner
