You don't need all of that to get started.

You don't "NEED" a gps.


That depends. If you are hunting 25 acres, you dont. If you are hunting 2500 acres and go to any gobbling bird you do. I mark the truck when I get out and turn it off. Then, for the rest of the day, if he gobbles I can move on him wherever hes at and never worry about where the truck is until quittin' time.

He is correct. A scope is not a neccesity, but one heck of a convenience.

No you dont. You can always spend your day beating the ground with sticks before each step to scare them away. You probably wont kill many turkeys, though.

True. But for less than $20, why not be comfortable?

Im not sure where you hunt, but I dare you to come to the Hatchie Bottoms without a Thermacall and treating your clothes with Sawyers. The ticks will eat you alive, if the mosquitos and black flies dont carry you off first. And these Hatchie Bottom pests think Deep Woods Off is a "come and get it, supper's on" aroma.

On second thought, dont buy the snakeboots, Sawyers, or Thermacell. Just spend you day in the woods looking for snakes, picking off ticks, and swatting mosquitos and black flies. Sounds like fun to me.

Mossberg 535 is a good cheap shotgun that comes with fiber optic sights and comes in a bunch diffrent camo patterns for about $450.

Come to think of it, I might know where one of these is for sale. A buddy of mine bought it new last year and was talking about selling it the other day. If interested send me a PM. He lives in Watertown but works in Nashville.

One thing that has supprised me about turkey hunting is I have only had 1 tick in 5 years turkey hunting on me. ONly seen 1 black snake (now i'm screwed ! ha) Never had a mosquito problem either... But then again, maybe we know why you are call "Swamp" hunter. I hunt in the high mountains! Never had any issue with these....
