10 Turkey Hunting Tips for the Desperate Beak Buster

10 Turkey Hunting Tips for the Desperate Beak Buster

Turkey season, spring's best game in town, is once again upon us. We start with high hopes, but I wonder how many of you are going to be sniveling with excuses at the end of the season? Over the years I have heard 'em all: The turkeys were henned up. They wouldn't come to a call. You didn't hear many gobbles. You just don't think the turkeys were there.


Trust me, I know all of the excuses because I've used them myself. But the truth is, it's pointless. The birds are there. And yes, they can definitely be tough to hunt even where plentiful. If they weren't, it wouldn't be worth the time to hunt them. We'd go fishing instead. But you can still kill them, even when they are henned up, even when they don't gobble and even when it doesn't seem like they want to come to a call. Follow these tactics and you're guaranteed to fill a tag or two.
