Turkey Hunting Whether it's spring or fall doesn't matter to this bunch. Great tips on calling, bustin flocks, using blinds and more.

Default My First Bird!

After three seasons of trial and error, teaching myself how to call and set up decoys....yesterday at close to 1100 I finally called in two gobblers and killed one. I was shaking like when I killed my first deer...when people say turkey hunting is a challenge...they aint kidding!

Nice bird! Now that you cracked the barrier it's all downhill from there---NOT!!! The old saying is that we would never kill one if they had the sense of smell like a deer.

Welcome the the maddened crowd. Your springs will never be the same.
May your next one be bigger than the one in your dreams.
