Turkey Hunting Mistakes to Avoid for a Successful Hunt
Here are five tips for successful turkey hunting.
1. Have patience - Don't get itchy feet thinking that your turkey is just one more hunting site away. Find a spot and stick with it for a while - at least 45 minutes. Spending time in one spot is a good thing as this will make turkeys complacent. You could be rewarded with a nice tom turkey if you can park it in one spot indefinitely.
2. Don't quit - Unlike other animal hunts which may lose momentum once the sun is fully up, don't quit on the turkeys. They roam all day and when the females start heading back to their nesting area, the tom turkeys are still restless and roaming. You could have the opportunity to bag a bird by not quitting.
3. Always make your move with controlled actions - Do not show your excitement once you hear or spot a turkey nearby. They will get spooked by sudden movements that are not natural to their surroundings. Instead, control your movements by pretending you are moving in molasses. This way, you are less likely going to make a mistake and this gives your turkey to get in a better range of sight for you to shoot.
4. Don't over call your welcome - When you hear a response from a turkey, don't go overboard with more calling. Tease the birds a bit and just make a few turkey sounds. If you feel they are turning to leave the area, entice them back with a few bolder calls and then wait them out again. Let the turkey come searching for you as this will put you in the best position to bag them. Be sure to adjust your calling based on wind direction as well.
5. Blend into your surrounding - Turkeys have pretty good eyesight and are not as dumb as people believe. Using camo for your equipment, clothing and even your skin can help you blend into the surroundings. Know where you are going first so that you can choose the type of camouflage whether it is the traditional greens, browns and blacks or the drab brown twigs and leaves. Don't use any bright colors on your person or on your gear as you would turn into a bright beacon for the turkeys.
