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

Best season ever!!

Thank you kellyquinn.. It has been hard hunting here as well. There has been no gobbling at all except for one morning jake gobbled. I found them in the hardwood where the snow melt made small run offs. I am not any kind of master just lucky to have found them. The hens gave them away..

Wow.
.I'm way late.
Awesome job Phil.

You are right. Many years if running Turkey contests and helping people. That is what my hunting is about, still is.

I set out this yr as I put all my conventional shotguns away.
I used only blackpowder.

And scored with all 3!
A heirloom 16 ga I believe was my great grandaddies percussion fowler.
A White Tominator 12 ga inline. Shot 2 wd's with this and ffg lat out missed one!
And finished with the Pedroselli 10 ga.

Closest shot was 3 yards.
Farthest was 13 yards.
I passed on 7 birds over my 25 yard goal.

I also took out 3 people who now all have their 1st.

But shooting a multiple bearded bird...awesome

Thank you JW.. Those contests were a lot of fun and gave a lot of input to people like myself trying to figure out how to get it one.. I am grateful for those days back then. I most likely would have given up hunting them if it wasn’t for all those chiming in. You helped me along a lot and chimed in whenever a question was asked about it. Thanks again.

Hey Phil thanks.

I always saw this type of media as a chance to share ideas. I also learned along the way and am still learning at 35 yrs into this sport.
The contests helped me meet many fine people and a few I hunted with.
If you ever get to Wisc and want to hunt Old Man style contact me.

Thank you and thanks for the offer.. While I am not sure if I will ever be out that. I am always trying to learn and figure those birds out. It appears to be a different challenge every year for them. But it surely is a lot of fun..
