This is my first year ever hunting turkey and I am looking for a little or a lot of advice.
I bought 20 aces of woods with plenty of turkeys. I have been out twice
first day I started walking after I parked the car and I hear a turkey flying in the tree. I stopped and setup some decoys and waited and waited.. I never heard anything and did not see a turkey even though they roost in the trees going up the dirt road... later that day I was walking in some tall grass and jumped one but it ran towards the road which was fairly close so I did not want to shoot.
second day I went late afternoon and thought I would experiment with calling... well two hens came towards me and they stopped behind a tree... well patience is something I have to work on but when I did not see them, I paniced and moved to see if I could see if they were moving away....damn out smarted by a turkey and they ran in a direction where I had no shot
my questions Do I have to wear camo? Do I need to use decoys and how? Calling, I have heard so many different things online I am not sure what to do..
I would appreciate any advice but pleas break it down "big bird style" as this is all new
