It is flat out stupid to crawl around with a turkey tail fan in front of your face. I really don't care if you do not like the truth. Fortunately in my state it is illegal, as it should be.

To each his own but for me that method is way to dangerous. I agree with Oldtimr.

Its even more stupid and dangerous to sit in the woods in camo calling like a turkey especially if you use a decoy but hey they don't ban that !!

I love the truth not bias bs. I have fanned for several years with no problem. I have however been stalked and and shot at several times just sitting calling I'll take my chances !!
