Hey Dan, Here's a tip . Keep after the turkeys . Use what you've learned to bag ol' tom. And when you are hunting , forget about everyone and anything else . Don't allow peer pressure to influence you . I say these things because that is exactly what I did when I first started . I always entered the woods with the thought in the back of my mind that ''I JUST GOTTA KILL ONE ''.
Now days ,,,I enter the woods with the mindset of ,,,,''I MUST FIRST TRICK HIM WITH GOOD CALLING AND A SET UP '', then maybe I'll kill him ,,,maybe I'll let him walk knowing I could have killed him .
It took me five seasons to kill one on my own . I didn't have anyone teaching me nor the internet . Only a few magazine articles and lots of mistakes . You have a lot in your favor and no doubt you'll will tag a bird .
