I always have seen big flocks of turkeys on the river bottom leading up to my friends ranch between Pueblo and Colorado City. A few weeks ago I was out there trying to call a coyote in and saw four toms on his land and last year on two different occasions saw flocks of at least thirty birds on his land. So, even though they seem to be on the river bottom below his land they do move thru his place from time to time. This has prompted me to buy an unlimited tag this year and borrow my dads box call he bought way back in the eighties when he and I clumsily tried turkey hunting a few times. I been practicing this week with videos on the net and will be giving it a try this weekend and off and on till the season ends if need be. Who knows maybe I'll get lucky being I'm a green rookie in this endeavor, but not for long.
I've been getting pissed with my turkey scouting. Coming up empty so far. Screw the stupid things, I should go elk scouting.
Its kinda funny to hear that, maybe your trying to hard. I seen four jakes this evening, i thought about showing them my Hoyt but they will be bigger next year. I didnt locate my flock of hens so i think a big tom has moved in and is pimping them out, i'll surely show him my Hoyt.
I'll be west of Walsenburg/Trinidad. I drew a good tag forJames M. John SWA as my buddy who drew it just had some hip work done and can't make it. He is trying to get better by elk season so He skipped this spring. So I cashed it in for an OTC, as I found a bunch of jakes & hens last spring, so I am hoping those jakes all grew up now
Gonna try and sling the pointy stick at them, and if no luck there I might have to pull out the boom stick!
Wind is one of the most crucial variables in any kind of big game hunting. It helps level the playing field between a hunter with a scoped rifle and the game animals being hunted. This is not novel information. Any hunter who has consistent success in the field knows this. I have tried a couple different techniques for keeping track of the wind. Here are a couple.
The most simple and obvious is to just stay cognizant of it. It is amazing how slight of a breeze you can sense if you just pay...
