Hunting Wild Turkey: More Than Just a Wild Goose Chase

Turkey hunting is one of the most enjoyable and the fastest growing forms of hunting today. The most successful turkey hunters use different techniques just to locate a bird. Many techniques are applied and each turkey hunter would swear by their methods. There are certain truths though that most hunters will agree upon. Some of them are obvious enough, like, being in a camouflage helps hunters stay hidden within gun range. Or movement is the supreme enemy of the turkey hunters. Much more than this, practicing makes your skills as a turkey hunter better. And the excitement of the turkey hunt will hone the hunter’s alertness. Like any sport, there are certain rules and regulations one must follow, here are some rules you need to remember: • You will need a turkey hunting permit and a small game hunting license - it is required when hunting wild turkeys. You can only buy one turkey permit each year. If you have filled your limit, you may call for another turkey hunter but you can never bring any fire arm or even a bow. • Using rifles and hand guns are not allowed. You can only hunt using your bow and arrow, shot guns with shot sizes no larger than number two or smaller than number eight. These are the only weapons for catching wild turkeys. • And you must fill out the tag which only comes with your permit and attach it to the turkey you shoot straight away. • Do not disturb hen turkeys or their nests. • Searching with a dog during spring is not permitted. But you may hunt with it during the fall season. • You must not use any intensifying device to locate or hunt turkeys during open seasons. Here are also some tips for a successful and safe turkey hunting season: • If you will leave your gear and your turkey with another person, make sure to leave the following information for emergency purposes.
