I haven't been hunting them, however when I get out for deer and bear scouting I bring along either the shotgun or rifle and usually do a little calling, but thats about it! Can't wait for spring to roll around!
hmmmmm ... went out deer hunting today (Idaho) ... saw two bunches of turkey. The hens were making their beautiful racket. Our fall locally limited season opens in about four days. With deer tags filled - my turkey tag from spring is still burning a hole in my pocket - may have to remedy that.
In my area in VA, we can take 2 turkeys in the fall. I took my 1st. turkey ever while deer hunting in my stand, & then my 2nd. the next day! 2 hens
going for the gobbler this spring!
Got one in the freezer & the other I gave away to a person in need.
Hunting can be slow and frustrating if Mother Nature throws a warm hunting season at you. But things can take a drastic turn for the better with the onset of a cold snap. Whether you get snow or just a good, prolonged cold front, the hunting can improve on a dime. But cold whether can also make certain parts of the hunt more tedious. Here are some things to keep in mind when your prayers for cold weather finally pay off.
You can see a your quarry's breath when it is cold outside...
