Of the four major varieties of Wild Turkeys found in North America, the Merriam's Turkey is perhaps the most striking, with their ivory tipped fans, stunningly iridescent plumage, and vocal presence across the vast meadows and wooded ridges of the high country. Spring is a fine time to be here at the Lodge and Ranch at Chama hunting these magnificent birds, for their springtime splendor is a major component which defines the soul and character of this 36,000-acre ranch.
