Take a look inside:
• Gary Sefton shows why turkey hunting gets tougher when you have to outwit tame birds as well as wild ones.
• Sometimes, getting “too close” to a roosted tom is exactly what it takes to be successful. Steve Hickoff shares practical tips.
• The time-tested box call is a great choice for rookies, but in the hands of an experienced hunter, such as Jim Spencer, it’s downright deadly.
• Excuses don’t put tags on gobblers. Tom Carptenter says effort does.
• If the first shot at a turkey doesn’t seal the deal, you might have to shoot again. Brian Lovett demonstrates how to make the most of a second chance.
• Here are three situations, courtesy of Travis Faulkner, in which simply paying attention to what the turkeys are telling you will help you fool stubborn toms.
• Jim Casada remembers Roger Latham, a Pennsylvanian visionary, conservationist and writer who left behind a wealth of literature on turkeys and turkey hunting.
