Anybody ever hear that it is hard to get a turkey to come down hill? Or across a creek?

    Unlucky.....that's all. Their timidness and general all around cowardice makes them hard to get to. I haven't killed one either in 3 years....So what ever you are...I am too.....

    The easiest turkey hunt I've ever had was with a conservation agent buddy in Missouri. He knew the area and was an amazing...if not "odd" hunter. We just jogged along ridges where he knew them to be and found the flock before it broke up....but just as it started to disperse a bit. They were in a sunny clearing in the woods and when he spotted the first naked head we dropped and quietly crawled into range using a line of cedars for cover. The tall grass also covered our approach.

    Once within shotgun range (4-10) we counted down...popped up and shot one each. I would have NEVER guessed that would work after countless failed attempts using blinds, calls, decoys, etc.

    I think the key in this case is that he knew the birds well...and used to scout the area for any game he could spot year around. Maybe they were used to him?

    If you're close to the area...I'd say just get out and do lots of scouting. You know the animal and the area...you'll have much more success and have to rely on "luck" much less.

    Thumbs down

    Not where I was, had 2 does walk straight in on me, at about 15yds - one of them figures out there's something there and does the stomp/blow routine (the 2nd one never did anything) but the dumb animals won't leave, they just mill around with the one blowing every so often, she then walks to about 10yds off my right shoulder and this time starts blowing at my decoys, I'm really getting now. Finally the stupid creatures depart and the next things to appear are a pair of yotes just a little too far off to hit with a 12GA turkey load. Can't call a tom just stinking yotes! After that I decided to forget it for the day.

    Coyotes are never too far off. I would take pop shots at them 150 yards away. If theres a way to wound them I would.

    Yah, funny how the animals all look out for eachother. id'nt it?

    Default Hi Wheely

    If you want to know about turkeys in your area
    or the area that you want to hunt..go on the web
    To your Game department in your area for public land and in the listing
    It should tell you about the deer & Turkey..Population
    Thats what i do first.On land ive never hunted before.
    Consentrate down to the largest consentration of birds in that area
    and go there..like a game preserve or wild-life management area.
    Then buy you 2 locator call's...a Barred owl & a crow call
    Use the Barred owl late in the evening right at dark and the crow in the morning after light and all day until birds roast then switch to the owl.
    If i were there i could find them..ive heard turkey's arnt as plentyful on the west coast as they are over here on the east coast
    We have it made when it comes to turkey and deer for population's
    Hope this helped

    If you were in NC I would recommend anywhere in the woods between Little Washington and Plymouth...
