Taking a week off to hunt deer during the rut is commonly referred to as a rutcation. My rutcations aren't nearly as long as they used to be given a growing family and other responsibilities.
Now that it's turkey season, I started to wonder what it'd be like to take a week off to turkey hunt. That got me to thinking, what is a turkey hunting vacation called? There were a couple ideas that ran through my head, but I posed the question to our community on social media and they came up with some great options including:
- Turks & Caicos Trip
- Spur-ing Break
- Alturkation With Your Spouse
- Bird Flu
- Bearded Break
- Beak Busting Break
Other comments included amazing, glorious, necessary, and "a waste of vacation. Just show up late everyday."
My personal favorites from the list are strutcation, jakation, gobbleratical, and flopcation. If I have to choose, my top choice is strutcation. There's a lot of great options, but which one is your favorite?
