    Closing the distance on turkeys

    I have about one or two more hunts left. I have Toms consistently making an appearance on a neighboring property at a distance of 450 yards. Is it possible to get them to come to me at this distance. I gobble called them last Saturday and they looked my way, but never came in. Should I set up...

    Disturbed turkeys?

    I had a hen in front of me on Monday the 6th and that was the first and only bird. The farmers in the area have been planting the fields like mad men and 90% of all of the fields have been planted. Since Tuesday, the day the planting started, I have yet to see or hear a turkey. They're not in...

    What broadhead are you using for turkeys?

    I shot my turkey with a shotgun, last year. This year I want to shoot one with my bow. :smiley_bril: Along with a groundblind and a few decoys, I've been waiting for a good shot with some mechanical broadheads on the ends of my carbon shafts. The 2-blade Rage (2" cutting diameter and...

    Turkeys respond to owl call.

    My owl call was not the best but it worked. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=BPthqf6xKzM

    How stupid are turkeys?

    Turkeys seem to be suckers for a groundblind. It wasn't there yesterday or earlier today, but that's cool...and they walk right by it. :smiley_chinrub: Goofy! I plan to purchase one before next year's turkeys season, as it's just not in the budget for this year. However, I do have a Cabelas...

    Turkeys or Coyotes?

    I went out turkey hunting this morning, but didn't see or hear any turkeys. I hunted in one location the first portion of the morning and in another location in the late morning. In both locations I neither heard or seen any turkeys, BUT I did see a coyote in both locations. :smiley_chinrub...

    How many years have you hunted Turkeys

    I'm trying to get an idea of the amount of turkey hunting expertise we have here at TOO. How many years have you guys hunted turkeys, and how many birds have you killed in those years? I will go first. I started hunting turks in 1992, so this will be my 21st year. I have killed a...

    Body shots for turkeys?

    Standard hunting methods and/or past practise for shooting turkeys with a shotgun has always been head shots. However, I have some ammo that I use for killing coyotes out to 50 yards. I would trust these loads/patterns on geese at the same distance. Dead Coyote Ts: 44 pellets @ 50 yards...

    Treestand for hunting turkeys?

    I've never hunted turkey from a treestand. I've always used a "run & gun" method and a few times with a groundblind & decoys. I know that turkeys are oblivious to a groundblind, therefore it makes for a good hunting method. You can walk in set one up and start hunting, without any suspicion...

    Bring it turkeys!

    I was getting a little excited about this turkey season...but finishing this video up the other night has got me all kinds of fired up to get after it this spring. You have to admit, there's just something about talking to those birds and them respoding back that gets the adrenaline going...

    Retaining Turkeys?

    I've been seeing 6 tom turkeys in the woods behind my house, since the middle of deer archery season. I have no idea where they came from or what's attracting them to this location. However, I'd like to retain/hold them until the spring turkey season opens. :smiley_chinrub: Any suggestions...

    Are turkeys hard on a growing corn crop?

    I'm hunting on a farmer's property that hates turkeys. He says that they'll uproot a corn crop as soon as it sprouts out of the ground. :smiley_boos: I'm not that familar with the eating habits of turkeys. :smiley_confused_vra Is this a lagitimate concern? Do turkeys eat the corn plant as...
