On my first turkey hunt I had 3 or 4 different calls and didn't know witch one to use or really how to use them. I even watched a listened to a couple of tapes on how to call but all they did was confuse me. The funny thing was that I spotted my gobbler with a bunch of hens walking up a narrow meadow. All I did was get ahead of them and waited for him to get into range. The hens almost busted me when they got within 5' of where I was sitting but couldn't tell just what I was. The tom was still 40 or so yards away but my trusty Mag-10 10 gage did the trick.
Sorry my son, you live to far from me. Ive taken youths out guided hunting and that just out of my range. Try calling your local National Wild turkey foud. chapter, im sure they have mentored youth hunts.
Jim Zumbo, Craig Boddington, Ron Spomer and Wayne Van Zwoll are all solid contributers to the modern hunting literature. Through their gifts (both hunting and writing) they make us better hunters. Whether it is letting us learn from their mistakes or by teaching us new techniques,they help us harvest more game. But I suggest looking to the oldies, the fathers of the outdoor writing craft, to learn tricks that you might have not used.
I chose to shoot the 270 winchester because I grew up...
