RE: Turkey sign, and a little test/help for new hunters

Looks like secal dropping in number one. Number two's a hen.

If that middle toe is as long as my middle finger, then its a tom.

I think the camo craze if fueled primarily by commercialism. Camo helps, and I wouldn't turkey hunt without it, but movement is the key.

RE: Mossberg 500 vs. Remington 870

What I'm saying is that it is rare for a tom to hang up up 75 -100 yds from my set-up. If that is happening to you, then I'd do two things:

1) ditch the dekes
2) set-up so that the tom has to...

Not to offend, but if most toms hang up at 75 to 100 yds, then there is a setup problem.

I'd suggest setting up so that the turkey cannot see you until he is within gun range. Your percentages...

If you know there are turkeys there, what is the point? No need to risk them getting wise on you.
