I thought this article was great. The guys that are killing turkeys regularly and during all conditions know that bird behavior and circumstances of particular day determine what your hunting approach will be. Aggressive tactics are more fun to implement but if the birds are not gobbling, you're likely doing more educating and damage than anything.
On days they're gobbling hard, charge in like the calvary (so to speak lol), but on days they're not, set up and fortify your scouted position and do the call and wait thing, letting the birds come by or to you.
Mr Lovett makes a great point in there can be a happy medium in that you can still move and cover ground but do it at a slower pace.
This was a topic of discussion with me and some others not long ago and this article should be read by some that seemed to think that theres only one way to hunt turkeys. This artcle will assist many in rounding out their game plaln.
Congrats to Mr Lovett on a another fine piece of work.
PS: Mr Lovett, I saw a photo of you and 5 other hunters and 13 turkeys from April 20th of this year in Texas hanging from the Bad Boy buggies. What am awesome shot!
It looked like the T&TH Delta Force had been turned loose on the Rio population. I don't think I've ever seen a more impressive photo of a hunt.
Let me know where this was so I can avoid it until the turkey population recovers.[:)]
