Your on a real good site right here , just look at the top of this page where you can the orange tool bar and put your cursor over the word huntingnet , then you'll seea little menu come down and you'll see turkey hunting , click on that and go from there.
Another web site you might wanna check out is ( www.nwtf.com ) the National Wild Turkey Federation is a real good sourch of information on hunting turkeys.
Or you could just read all of these post and replys in this forum , it's full of good info about turkey hunting , don't forget to look at the back page's.
Whatever you need to know , it's all right here , if you can't find the answer your looking for then ask , everybody in here will be happy to help you myself included.

I agree with RDHunter. He gave you some good links. Huntingnet and nwtf have just about everything you can read about turkey hunting. Best of luck this up coming season!

Bow hunting turkey is some of the most skilled hunting there is... Its hard enough to get a bead on them sometimes without them seeing you... My best advise with bow hunting turkeys is to be patient with your shot and if you have a good ground blind... use it.... drawing on one bird may not be too bad.... drawing on a bird who has Jakes or other buddies following is going to be tricky.

Id try a shotgun for at least one year. But hey, if you stick one i will be damn proud of you. Im going to try to get one with a bow this year. What you will notice is its very hard to get a turkey into shotgun range and even harder to get one in those extra few yards with a bow. It can be done. Be quiet, be still, be patient. If you can get a hold of a ground blind, do it. If not, try and make one. Ive only been after the birds for 3 years so other people will have some better info. Also, get good with a diaphram call since you will have your bow in your hands. Good luck man. Im pulling for ya.
