Bounties of Spring
Jesse Shepherd's woodland harvest
From the July, 2014 issue
Jesse Shepherd is an expert woodsman. In season he hunts wild turkey and deer, traps muskrats, and hunts small game. In summer he enjoys fishing the lakes in the Waterloo State Recreation Area between Jackson and Chelsea. And each spring he'll often walk up to twenty miles in one day and gather more than 100 morel mushrooms.
