I agree with turkey hunter that if you can get him fired up in midday you've got a pretty good shot at calling him in. Thats one thing I love about hunting that time of day

Ive killed birds at every hour of the day, from flydown to flyup. There's not a bad time! YES you will most often hear more birds gobble early in the morning, but that doesnt mean they are easier to kill. If you can stand to do it, stay after em all day long. All it takes is for him to gobble a time or two and the game is on regardless of the time of day!

What he said. I've probably killed more in the morning but when possible I'll stay out all day. Late in the season when hens are nesting if you can get one to gobble around mid-morning or later you've got a great chance of killing him.

I've had most success early to mid AM. I've killed some birds in the evening mostly by knowing known roosting areas and cutting them off.

It's all about timing,find a bird in the right mood and it won't matter what time of day it is!

Early morning for me. Im usually hunting places with very large fields. Alot of times during the midday and afternoon they will just get out in the middle of those fields and stay with hens. Ive killed alot of a afternoon though but have had much more success at calling in the morning. Its all going to be relative to whatever areas someone is hunting. For instance for big woods hunting in the park, I have had more success midday after the hens leave the gobblers and the gobblers start gobbling some more.


Good Answer

I love watching them fly down and eating my lead...

One of the places I hunt you have to get them first thing in the morning or you will be belly crawling... \:D
