Recommendations on turkey hunting books?

Recommended Posts

Does anyone have any recommendations for a good book to start with regarding turkey behavior and hunting strategies? I'm learning a bit each year as I'm out in the field but not nearly as quickly as I'd like to be so I'd like to dive into some books and try to learn more. I'm not really looking for any videos regarding calling techniques yet because I want to understand more about what the calls mean and how turkeys interact with those calls before I try to expand on my basic calling abilities.

Thanks.

It's weird, I've read dozens of whitetail books, but not a single turkey book. The cumulative wealth of knowledge from forum board members can really speed up the learning curve though. DVDs & youtube are great as well if you're a visual hands-on type.

"Advanced Turkey Hunting & World Records" by Dave Harbour written in 1983 was probably the first and best, but may be hard to find now.

Anything you can find wriiten by Brian Lovett, Ray Eye or John Trout Jr. will be worth your time. I'm sure there are many others, but these come immediately to mind.

Thanks Don. Brian Lovett was the author's name I couldn't remember that had been previously recommended to me. Our local library has a couple of his books so I think I'll start there. I see I can also get a used version of the Dave Harbour book on Amazon for less than 5$ so I'm off to a good start. Thanks!

Don when are you going to publish your book?

Actually, you'll read all about my adventures right here on HSO. That's as close to published as I'll ever get.
