Not me, I just can't bring myself to "deer hunt" turkeys!


Ditto. If they arent gobbling I would rather go fishing. Not going to deer hunt em.

I was in Miss, and the birds were there, tracks, strut marks, poop, and and dust pits do not lie. Nor do hundreds of sightings during deer season. The birds are there, they just were locked down.

If history repeats itself then the silence will soon spread northward this way.

they taste too good, license cost too much and lease fees are high enough not to go. the last 2 I shot never uddered a sound but my heart was still pounding when they snuck in.

Don't change the taste and I'd hunt them if they couldn't gobble, yelp, see, hear or walk.

I didn't realize so many folks turkey hunted for the meat aspects. Sure the meat is great, but it isn't the reason I turkey hunt. I love the chess game of moving and positioning on birds. Silent birds do nothing for me, but to each his own.

It wouldn't be near as much fun but I'd still hunt them. Just have to sit and blind call for longer periods of time until you were sure nothing was in distance of you and then move to another spot. It sure wouldn't be the same though without the big gobble to get your blood flowing.
