Re: need help

As Hoggetter said let us know where you are located at and we might be able to give you some more help.

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.

Re: need help

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.

Re: need help

What part of Va do you live? Do you have access to land to hunt turkeys in your area? State lands, game lands, national forest land?

Re: need help

We need a little bit more on what you need help with. If it is calling and you have never done it before you might try a cd such as this one from Cabela's http://www.cabelas.com/cabelas/en/templates/product/standard-item.jsp?_DARGS=/cabelas/en/common/catalog/item-link.jsp_A&_DAV=MainCatcat20712-cat20827&id=0066168227241a&navCount=3&podId=0066168&parentId=cat20827&masterpathid=&navAction=push&catalogCode=IA&rid=&parentType=index&indexId=cat20827&hasJS=true

Or if it is for help in hunting you may try this forum for Virginia Turkey hunters. http://www.vaturkey.com/
