Education and Training

There are three primary objectives associated with turkey hunting in a group of family or friends:

  1. Having a Safe Hunt
  2. Participating In An Enjoyable Experience
  3. Harvesting a Turkey

Notice that the obvious "Harvesting A Turkey" is number three!

Having a safe hunt is the most important aspect of turkey hunting. Remember that turkey hunting involves wearing camouflage clothing and making "turkey sounds" in the woods. Never assume that you are completely alone.

They may not have your enthusiasm or ability to sit still while ignoring bugs, thirst, etc.

Tent-style ground blinds are recommended to allow a youngster the freedom of movement, (or even a nap) without risking the success of the hunt. You can have drinks and snacks without giving away your presence by movements, or by reflections from shiny food wrappers or drink containers.

 

Always keep in mind these four primary rules of firearm safety:

  1. Always have the muzzle pointing in a safe direction
  2. Treat every firearm with the respect due a loaded gun
  3. Be sure of your target - including what is in front of, or beyond it
  4. Keep your finger outside the trigger guard until ready to shoot

Ground Blinds: Tent-Style ground blinds are obvious choices for hunting in bad weather, and really handy for taking kids turkey hunting!

Pros: Allows you to stay in the field longer during wet weather, and hides most movements inside the blind.

Cons: Weight and bulk can limit your mobility, and being inside the blind can feel confining when the weather is nice outside. View Blinds

What's new this month...!

Spring 2009 turkey seasons are now a distant memory. In the downtime between seasons, successful turkey hunters can now find the time for "do it yourself" taxidermy with the tail feathers, beard, and spurs of their previous wild turkey gobblers. Of course, all hunters can also prepare for the following season by purchasing whatever gear and supplies they wished that they had already owned while hunting last season. And there are still some Fall turkey hunting opportunities coming soon...............
