During turkey season, itâ€™s not unusual for hunters to ask permission to use her land, as she lives in the country outside of Mason City. After a successful hunt, itâ€™s customary for her to receive thanks by being given one of the birds that was bagged. On occasions such as these, Loretta tells the men just to skin the bird and sheâ€™ll do the rest.
