Yes it does. I'll be at the camp Friday night and in the woods Saturday morning with my brother looking for my first gobbler. Should be a good time. I didn't know Turkey was considered BIG GAME in this state?

Yes it is...and things happen fast once the first gobble happens. 20 different things going on...where to set up, does he have hens, where is he headed, are there any obstructions between you and the bird, are we close enough, decoys or no decoys......

Or things don't happen fast at all and the rush of contact may last most of the morning without relief.

If you have never watched the video of Preston Pittman imitating a wild turkey hen feeding to get within 3 ft. of a flock of turkeys-you need to watch that. That guy can make damn near every sound a turkey can make...all the vocalizations-even the soft wit wits and whistles that the average turkey hunter has probably never even heard and even fewer can duplicate. They are not necessary to kill a turkey, but he has spent his life studying the bird since he was a kid and can fool a flock into thinking he is a turkey and literally crawl in amongst them and have them accept him as a turkey. Very impressive....

Oh I don't think so. Just always wondered why this never happens in small towns.


When I lived in eastern NC, met a guy whose full time job was patching bullet holes in the water towers around Camp Lejeune. Seems the .30 cal armor piercing ammo did punch through those water towers. :lol3:

The name of the game in Eastern turkey hunting is scouting, scouting and more scouting. Never mind where they were in deer season, or even last week come early Spring. As nesting approaches, the hens are going to move near prime bugging sites for the poults to come, and the gobblers are going to move with the hens.

Once you're in the general area, you and everyone else out there will want to know where the birds like to roost. Fewer will go to the trouble of watching how the birds are apt to come off that roost and scout possible ambush points in their LZ and the least conspicuous routes to them, but it will pay you to have the patience and spend the time to do so without pushing the birds out. Then you'll want to similarly scout alternate roosts they use when scouters push them out of more favored ones.

Also takes patience to gather what I think the most important intel when the birds are too "henned up" to bother looking for one: where the big boys go in mid morning after their gals have peeled off to lay their daily egg. Might be nomadic but many have their version of a man cave where they'll head to loaf and perhaps congratulate themselves on the morning's conquests. Chances are it will be a site with considerable view, but that won't matter if you're there and hidden before he arrives.

While you're spending all the mornings you can possibly free up, and too often shouldn't have, out there learning the layout, pay careful attention to the hen talk, not just to learn its tones and cadences and how they differ from the DVD experts, but with an ear to picking out distinctive hens you might learn to duplicate. So when every gun-toting mother clucker, yelper, cutter and purrer in the country has the gobblers suspicious out of their skulls, you can offer the reassuring voice of good old Easy Mary.

Or you can save all that time, sleep in and go sit by the edge of the swamp and whack the poor bastage when he come by picking baby crawfish.
If you think I'm wrong, you might be right.

Excellent insight Rick. I hope every turkey hunter regardless of experience takes a moment to read your post. An ol' blockhead like me might could pick up a few pointers myself :yes:
It's been a few years, but I wonder if I'm mad enough at the thunder chickens to see if they've changed their habits any since my last trip out to their woods...
