How often have we as hunters sat in our stand, wind blowing the wrong direction, hoping that the animals won’t pick up on us?  I have to admit, there have been more times than I can remember. Whether it was a switch in the wind while in stand or just plain laziness, we have all broken the number one rule of big game hunting. First hand experiences have sharpened my knowledge of this unseen dictator. We have to remember that everything in an animal’s world revolves around their nose and to be proficient as a predator we have to do…

Next time you head for the turkey woods, take some wings with you—not the BBQ kind, but a real turkey wing from a past successful hunt. Wings have been used for a long time by turkey hunters to make a flapping sound as they do fly-down calls, but here is another way you can use them. Set up within about 100 yards of a roosted gobbler and gently tap and scrape your wing against a tree as you yelp and cluck. That sounds to the gobbler like a hen stirring and preening on her roost limb as she begins to…

Show them how to pattern the shotgun and let them practice shooting. During the turkey hunt, place them tightly by your side or inside your knees. Help them align the shotgun on the…

Even though it’s next to impossible to call the boss away from the flock, it can be pretty easy to call the flock’s subordinate gobblers into range. Subordinates are usually 2-year-old birds that have gotten beat up by the boss a few times.
