Turkey Hunting Lesson #1

Post  Maddox on 2011-04-01, 22:39

So as you all know I am totally lost now that hunting season is out and am just itching for something to do. I had the opportunity to get a little fishing in already (Thanks again Frenchy!) and now I am trying to figure out what is next. Here goes, the first weekend in May I have a trip planned to our family cabin for Turkey and Trout. I am actually taking the whole family on this one as well as Big J and our old man. This all being said I have no idea what the hell I am doing when chasing turkeys hence the reason this post is occurring. Just like any amatuer hunter I have purchased all necessary beginner kits from my Turkey vest (with a kick ass seat!) and my starter pack (wow I am greenhorn!) of turkey calls. I have been practicing up and not that I would know if it was bad but the calls sound decent. The last thing I need is the decoys and I have no idea where to start so I am reaching out to you all for some advice. I saw the 3 packs which is what I was thinking but then I realized this isn't goose hunting so the more decoys not necessarily the better, certainly not when the sound of a couple dying cats is coming off your box call (I am working on that!). Somebody tell me the setup I need and how to lay it out.

I am actually hoping that I will spend the first day calling for Big J to knock one down and then finish off the set on Day 2 with my bird. So please make it some good advice because how I will roll now doesn't equal the outcome previously mentioned.

Hey jcomer - I appreciate the offer and will take you up on that! I am thinking maybe we can catch up when I am down that way for the Pheasant hunt on 4/30 if you around or if not we can coordinate with Michele. Could probably use a quick lesson in some good setups as well if you don't mind letting me in on your secrets Very Happy.
