Do your best to make a small footprint while you're hunting turkeys and they will be turkeys.
My sentiments exactly.

In order to "pattern man" they would have to be able to think and reason. If they could do this you would never kill one.
So you guys are saying that turkeys DO have the ability to reason?
ORIGINAL: Fan Club
The gobbler knows that the hen is supposed to meet him halfway and when she doesn't he gets supicious. The gobbler knows that he should see a live hen when he closes the range on hen calls, when he doesn't he hangs up. The gobbler knows your calls came from the timber, not the field where your decoys are, and continues to look into the woods. The gobbler knows that tree calls aren't supposed to come from the ground and flies down the other way. The gobbler knows the pecking order of all of the other toms in the area and becomes irate when an intruder is presented in the form of a full strut decoy.
All of these instances suggest that there is some form of information processing taking place....
I know that you think we are splitting hairs here, but I disagree.
Far too many hunters look too deeply into the mind of a turkey and therefore cheat themselves out of chances to fill tags.
