Sen. Jones bags a wild turkey

LANSING—Sen. Rick Jones, R-Grand Ledge, shows off the result of a successful wild turkey hunt on Sunday, May 4. The senator encourages Michigan residents to take advantage of one of the nation’s longest wild turkey seasons.

“I wish more teenagers would put down their video game controls and enjoy Michigan’s great outdoors,” Jones said. “Hunting is a time-honored tradition, and the early spring is a great time of year to get out and hunt.”

The Michigan spring wild turkey hunting season is underway and lasts until May 31. More information about turkey hunting can be found at
