    pre season turkey scouting.....

    Post  crossroadbeagles on Fri Apr 29, 2011 7:25 am

    i've been ridding around covering quite a bit of area calling out with my electric caller in the evenings.... not much thus far....found a few but its been hit or miss.

    Any one else having any luck finding birds?

    i've seen few birds but i never go out at night and roost them the reason is if you roost one or two theres usely 3 other guys roosting the same birds so i usely just get up early go get on a hill and just lisin and you will hear alot of them then just go and get near and call them rich

    Evenings are hit or miss you should be looking early in the morning. stop calling you are educating birds, use a crow call or owl only. every time you hit that call its like your showing the other team your play book!

    i wont be hunting this year but have been seeing alot of big birds. def dont call to the birds until the season. they get educated quick. i will usually get out an hour before dark every night if i can and roost a bird. ive had very good success finding a good bird at night. watching which tree he goes up and getting in way early in the morning to beat the crowd. dont have to call half the time if you get in there quiet. good luck to ya this year. im gonna have to put my camo on and play a turkey hunting game on the Wii this year hahah.
