Wild Turkey Hunting Tips

Small game hunters can spend years tracking their favored prey, yet still learn something new each time they take to the field. Turkey hunters in particular are always appreciative of any fresh information that can make the pursuit of their chosen hunt a little easier. There are many tips on turkey hunting that are fairly well documented, but others are equally useful and worth noting.

It is always recommended to make as many pre-season visits to the selected area as possible, to learn about the terrain and likely spots of potential roosts - this will come into great effect when the adrenalin is pumping during the actual hunt. Having prior knowledge of thickets, or other features capable of screening movements, will all serve to aid towards a desired outcome. It will also help to find an ideal route into which a gobbler can be lead. Steer clear of gullies, creeks, and thick undergrowth, plus it would be unwise to call a turkey down a steep slope, for obvious reasons.

The key factor with a hunter of any type of animal is not to have any inhibitions, as there are many occasions when the situation will demand a little extrovert behavior, to say the least. One example of this is a favorite amongst fall turkey hunting tips, when the hunter runs whooping and yelling, or even barking like a dog, at a flock of wild turkeys, often giving the impression of a deranged lunatic, but it more often than not scatters the birds, ultimately leading to smaller groups and, as a consequence, presents a better chance of success.
Camouflage is a must when it comes to wild turkey hunting. The bird has such remarkably good eyesight that without it, the hunt will be over even before it has started. The full suit, gloves, cap, and face mask may make you feel a little self-conscious, but it will give the best possible chance of getting near enough to pick off a target. A mistake some hunters make is in failing to realize the need to wear dark socks too. They wrongly assume they are unimportant and forget that a light pair will show up as soon as they sit down.

During the fall turkey hunting season, other upland creatures are hunted more intensely. Consequently this means that the dynamics of a hunters strategy will need to shift slightly. The chances are that there will be many occasions when the woods will be occupied only by yourself, meaning that there will be no unexpected distractions, but it will also necessitate additional periods of patience, a commodity that if lacking in any way, should deter an individual from even attempting to hunt the wild turkey.

Hunting in pairs is an established course of action to take, often with high degrees of success, due to the ability it gives: to totally confuse the turkeys. However it is imperative (if working together) that a duo do just that, and work for each other, as any sign of selfishness will ruin a hunt for both parties, and the advantage will shift completely back to the bird and in all honesty, any slight shift in their favor, will make a catch almost impossible.
