I have confidence in my calling, I just don't call to them in the scouting phase of the season....[:D] Thought ya had me huh?
What's the "scouting phase of the season".

I didn't say that was the only way I hunted turkeys. I've called in dozens. Your arrogance is astounding. I make no presumptions about the way you hunt and really couldn't care. Like Gobbleman said...here we go again.
As for your stalking skills, preseason scouting hardly counts. One would assume since this is a turkey hunting forum that the subjects discussed would pertain to turkey hunting. A henned up gobbler in the first week of May, that has been called to and hunted for nearly a month bears no resemblance to the flocked up turkeys you birdwatch that haven't even separated yet.
Your penchant for starting non-specific threads leaves you lots of wiggle room. That's how we end up reading about the weather in Pennsylvania in March instead of turkey hunting in May.
YIKES!,...here we go again.
If I may interject here. In Wisconsin turkey hunting is relatively new so I didn't even know that people had a problem with stalking a bird.I just thought that it was a natural part of hunting to put the sneak on a wild animal. As I am sure our hunter-gatherer predecessors thought.I mean would you not try to get a little closer to that 10 pointer that is bedded down in the willows if the conditions are right??? I waited 7 years until I had enough confidence to even try to stalk a Tom. Thankfully all went well and his tail is hanging on the wall and I have no regrets!
side note to r&s shooting turkeys from the roost is not illegal in wis either there is nothing in the rulebook that says you can't but I personally won't do it
and figure that this is acceptable behavior. There is no law against roost shooting in my area.... so it`s ok? I don`t think (I hope) the author of that statement would condone roost shooting.... but it`s legal... more of an unwritten rule among sport turkey hunters?....so where do you draw the line in unwritten turkey hunting rules? I am not trying to be argumentitive here, just something to think about while you are putting down the "old ways" There are at least 2 views, most likely more to any discusion, I`m sure many hunters fall somewhere in between the extremes, and in written words many things can be taken in a way that wasn`t fully intended, I know a wordsmith I`m not! So don`t read between the lines. In....out....in...out.....I repeat, if it is legal and the season is in and you have the skill to make it happen, GO FOR IT!!!!
YIKES!,...here we go again.
Yep, you hit that nail on the head Gobblerman!! [8|]
This post was designed to set up those who do stalk turks, and abuse them once they admit they do it.
I say, if you can't get the turks to come to you in the traditional fashion, but have the skill to bushwhack them instead..............vs. letting the turk walk out of your life..............then GO FOR IT!!!
BUT, don't get on me and claim that I am illegal, or unethical, or any of the other BS because you don't think I should do that. I repeat, if it is legal and the season is in and you have the skill to make it happen, GO FOR IT!!!!
