Ok, I STINK at spring turkey hunting.....LOL....anyway, as hard as them buggers are to kill, can you imagine if they had the sense of smell a deer had??? Oh good grief, it would be impossible, would it not?

Just a random thought...

If they could smell like deer, I'd say shooting one every five years or so would only be possible if you were a really good turkey hunter. Thank goodness they cant!

I've compared them to coyotes, and I've shot several coyotes that came to the call with my bow. Not easy, but if you try hard enough, it can be done!

It sure is a good thing they don't. For being a 'dumb bird', a lot of people have a hard time getting one.

I don't think we would ever see one up close enough to shoot. They already see better than deer. I don't know how good their hearing is.

We'd have to have turkey p**p cover scents, "hot hen" scent trails and scent bombs in the trees,turkey-lok suits and hunt from treestands.
