What you learn from fall hunting will help you on your spring hunts. The vocalizations that you hear birds doing in the fall are about twice from what you hear in the spring hunts. There is no better time to learn turkey talk, and different calls they use and the meanings of them. If your a good spring hunter, you'll be 3 times better, once you learn how to fall hunt. It will teach you woodsmanship, calling, and most important, understanding what birds like to do and why they do it. Your scouting is very important in the fall, because you won't call birds in from long distances like you can in the spring, but they do come to a call very well. I find it easier to call gobblers in the fall, once you've found them and get in close enough to work them. It will also teach you how to move on birds and get in close enough to them, so what you learn in the fall will help you in the spring, more than what you've thought possible.
