If I were to have an equation it would be ( Comfort X interest + disapline = patience).
But. As I am sure that some would agree, it is hard to put Patience into an equation for a whole season. Each hunt can present it's share of difficult situations that would require a different approuch to keeping your patience. LUCK and doing your homework on the birds your hunting in a given area have alot to do with a successful hunt.
There are alot of factors that play their part when hunting turkeys. The only constsnt is that there is not constant when it comes to hunting these difficult birds. Except MAYBE one. Which would be that no matter how boogerd a hunt might be you will always come back for more. So just enjoy the opportunity to hunt these birds while you can.
If it gobbles,runs on gas, or is married to you it will give you trouble!
