Wild turkey hunting is one of the most popular hunting pastimes. At The Hunting Grounds, we offer an unforgettable wild turkey hunting experience that is sure to thrill the avid huntsman. To help you prepare for your next wild turkey hunting excursion, here are some tips and tricks to keep in mind when hunting wild turkey.
Master the Calls
To help you attract wild turkeys to your hunting area, it is important to master a variety of turkey calls. Turkeys have many different calls at various times of the day, including clucks, purrs, and cackles. When preparing for your next turkey hunting trip, it can be helpful to listen to recordings of all of the different types of turkey calls.
Keep Your Distance
While the majority of turkey hunts occur in open areas, it is important to keep your distance to avoid alarming or exciting the tom and hens. Turkeys use sight rather than scent to detect your presence, so it is a good idea to remain concealed using camouflage and a face mask. Concealing yourself behind a tree is another way to get close without exciting a tom.
When hunting wild toms, the use of decoys can be extremely effective. After making your calls, you can lure the tom using a hen or gobbler decoy. Engaging the tom using calls and a decoy will give you time to line up your shot. Remember to cover your decoys with fluorescent orange when you are carrying them back from the hunt.
