New to Turkey Hunting

10 posts in this topic

This was my first year turkey hunting. I only had a chance to get out one day in my "A" season. I applied to just get a preference point and ended up getting drawn. I knew nothing about turkey hunting so I brought my buddy with who has all the calls, blinds, decoys, etc. We came close a couple of times but didn't connect. All I can say after the one day I am hooked. I need all the tips you guys can offer. I am sure there is thread already started but I couldn't find it. So if someone could post the link that would be great. I will apply for the fall season also but I heard that is a totaly different hunt.

Thanks guys.

Yeah you'll get frustrated and outsmarted but the first time you have one come in to your calling and you take him down believe me it will quickly wash away the negatives.

Hey Bill welcome to youre new obsesion!Wait until you call one in thats gobblin all the way in!I was in the same boat 20 years ago to,the best learning expierence i had was going to a hunting seminar by RAY EYE dont know if he still does em but if he comes to youre area make it a point to go , right on info and very entertaining!Also he had a couple videos out ,Eye on the wild turkey 1and11they will teach you for sure!If you can get youre hands on them you wont be disapointed ! My other advice would be dont move, always expect em to come from the opposite way you think there going to come from!

We did a couple calls a couple of different times and got answers back but only on the first call. I suppose we waited about 30-45 minutes and called a couple more times but nothing materalized. That gobble really gets your blood going.

I am really interested in getting into turkey hunting. I would use a bow it just seems more exciting to take a turkey with a bow. What do you guys think?

I hunted with a shotgun for 7 seasons and don't think I could handle anymore adrenaline. I don't see that changing anytime soon.

Tips, be quiet and dead still. There is no such thing as under calling and its easy to over call. Know the lay of the land and what areas the turkeys use. You'll learn as you go.

    • Don't worry Chuck......PF has your back.
    • It's just sooooooooo easy.
    • Speaking of Russia:   A timeline of recent events. 11/28/16 - " Trump’s campaign took him up on it in March. From those meetings, Nunes grew close with retired Army Lt. Gen. Michael Flynn, a top Trump hand who has just been nominated to be the president-elect’s national security adviser. 2/13/- 1) Flynn gets recorded by Intel agencies, we know he discussed sanctions and 2) it was part of a "Peace Plan" involving Cohen, Sater and a Ukranian named Alex Oronov 3) who is now dead. 2/16 - Flynn faces no FBI charges Source 3/20 - Comey announces FBI investigation into members of Trump campaign. Repubs, including Nunes, spend a great deal of it concerned about Unmasking of Flynn from incidental collection. Source 3/22 - Nunes spends his week freaking out about possible incidental collection he's been told about from an unknown source, immediately warns Trump. Source Now to go back to January, Who happened to be at the Breakfast with Flynn in January involving Turkey? Nunes. Where did it happen? Trump hotel in Washington. Source  3/22 - The House Oversight Committee on Wednesday requested documents related to ousted National Security Adviser Michael Flynn from the White House, FBI, Department of Defense and Office of the Director of National Intelligence. Source 3/22 - Schiff now claims there's "More than circumstantial evidence of Collusion (Unrelated to Nunes new info) Source 3/23 - CNN story drops that "The FBI has information that indicates associates of President Donald Trump communicated with suspected Russian operatives to possibly coordinate the release of information damaging to Hillary Clinton's campaign, The FBI is now reviewing that information, which includes human intelligence, travel, business and phone records and accounts of in-person meetings ." Source 3/24 - Nunes cancels 2nd open hearing with Intel Committee, seemingly for no reason. Source - Albeit today we learned Sally Yates was going to talk about Michael Flynn at this hearing. 3/24 - Manafort, Stone and Page all more or less simultaneously agree to speak with Intel Committee. Source 3/24 - National Inquirer (owned by Trump's friend) very oddly throws Flynn under the bus. Source 3/25 - Claim that Flynn may have cut a deal Source It seems Flynn may be spilling the beans here, which would not bode well for Trump.   Also I didn't even get to today's news about Kushner and Russia.     What do we know VEB? It ran a spy ring in New York City. Here's another fun coincidence:     Prosecuted by our now removed district attorney.
