I want to put some friends on some turkeys opening weekend. I know or I think I know I have some turkeys to put them on. lol

What is the best way to guide a successful turkey hunt where they both make a kill?

Get out and roost a few birds in same area the night before. Then get there early and hope for the best.

How can I be sure the birds I roost don't move off the roost during the night?

You can't. If you roost them at dark and nothing scares the crap out of them, they should be there in the morning.

yotes in large pack,big owls, or storm are the only things that might move them.i'd say 98% of time they are going to be there.good luck

bsl is right, but if you have scouted the burds then you know where the fly down will be or have an idea.

Be careful roosting also, the gobblers that gobble at dusk aren't the only gobblers in the woods. I've busted more than a few toms while I was trying to sneak in on my "roosted" bird.

Knowing where the turkeys go after fly down and where they spend most of their day is key, its alot easier to call a turkey up if you are somewhere he wants to be. Good luck!

I would be careful roosting, sometimes you can do more harm then good. Also, birds that usually respond on the roost usually have hens, and usually are more prone to gobble to gather any stragglers.

I used to roost birds, but a 1 out of 10 success rate made me stop, as it just wasn't worth the hassle.



Seems to me roosting a bird is about the same thing as catching one gobble in the morning...just finding out where they are earlier. Ditto on bumping them going in!
