Winter is finally on the wane, and if you need a little motivation to get our your turkey gear and maybe lose a few pounds before the season opens, check out these great photos submitted by members of the North American Hunting Club.

In just a couple of months, Old Man Winter will go back into hibernation and Mother Nature will begin singing the song of spring across the country. And that means turkey season.

If you’re a turkey hunter who embraces spring fever, prepare to be infected by this stunning photo gallery submitted by North American Hunting Club members.
