I would really recommend "Turkey Hunter's Tool Kit: Shooting Savvy" by Jay Langston. It was written several years ago but the information in it is still very useful. You'll also get some history of shotshells, shotguns and read about some of the real pioneers in the modern turkey hunting age.

I consider it a vital part of my reference library.

I understand that you can order that book directly from Jay. It would be money well spent!


P.S. There are also several excellent books available here from the folks at T&TH.

Tom Kelly's book's are very entertaining and are among my favorites.  
Other Authors I've enjoyed are: Earl Groves, Gary Blair, Ken Morgan, and Wayne Bailey.
Tom Feagley wrote an interesting book regarding PA Turkey hunting.
If someone can convince Denny Gulvas to write one, that could be a great read.

"The Wild Turkey and Its Hunting" by Edward A. McIlhenny.

Free on Google Books. ... ey#PPP1,M1

Perhaps the greatest book ever written on the wild turkey, and probably the first book written as well.

Some excellent books mentioned here.
To help me undestand what a turkey is doing & why he/she is doing it, I always try to think like a turkey. One book that helped me do that is "Illumination in the Flatwoods" by Joe Hutto.

I just finished reading "hunting Pressured Turkeys" by Brian Lovett. It was a great book. It has been  a nice way to get away from the sub-zero temps and 180" of snow so far in western NY! Well written and informative.

Ray Eye's Practical Turkey Hunting Strategies is full of useful information. If you like to listening to hunting stories and like the nostalgia of days gone by I enjoyed Larry Dablemont's book The Greatest Wild Gobblers.....Lessons Learned From Old-Timers and Old Toms
