Turkey Hunting Vests
Comfort - a good turkey vest must be not only practical but also comfortable. When it comes down to size, this isn't a real issue as these come oversized and one size usually fits all. If you plan on purchasing a fitted vest you must keep in mind the amount of clothing you will be wearing underneath it. On the market there are some versatile vests that feature zip-off sleeves for the cool fall mornings which can be easily removed when the temperature rises. Most of the vests are made from a thin and light material so that the hunter feels good during mild temperatures - the disadvantage is that this material doesn't provide enough cushioning when the hunter leans up against a tree. A vest that has a padded back will allow the hunter to sit comfortably for a couple of hours
Concealment - camouflage is a must when purchasing a turkey vest because these birds have excellent visual abilities as well as the capacity to observe colors. A pattern with more brown and gray is more efficient during the early spring when the new vegetation and leaves have not yet sprouted. This pattern is also recommended for the fall season. As the spring season evolves, a green-based pattern is recommended because it blends more naturally with the environment.
Safety - a large part of the turkey vests have removable blaze orange safety flag on the back in order to make the hunter visible to other hunters thus preventing any unfortunate accidents. Many vests feature a large game bag in the back so that the bird you have captured and now carry won't be visible to other hunters. These bags are also useful for carrying turkey decoys.
