With the excitement of spring gobbler season upon us, do not blow an opportunity by making one of these common mistakes.1. Calling Too Early, Calling Too Much, or Calling Just Plain Badly
You might be able to get away with less than stellar calling skills, but you will not get away with poor timing, overdoing it, or completely butchering bird sounds. Strategic calling can get gobblers fired up and bring them in, but it can be tough to strike the perfect balance.
Day after day of chasing Toms can get exhausting, but do not give up or slack off. Putting in a little extra effort can mean the difference between a turkey dinner and tag soup.
Wild turkeys are cagey creatures and can be tough to fool.
While you can certainly still kill a gobbler at other times throughout the day, intercepting one right off the roost will give you the best odds of bagging a bird.
Wake up early and get to your spot with plenty of time to spare before first light. Use a locator call if necessary to reposition and set up. Nothing beats hearing that morning thunder.
