Now I feel so guilty about using full strut decoys, popup blinds, and all the other "things" that make killing a turkey so easy, that I swear, I'm going to make and use my own longbow and cedar arrows with hand-chipped stone arrowheads, wear nothing but buckskin moccasins and loin cloth, hunt only heavily forested mountains, at no lower than 5,000 feet elevation, use vocalized calling only, not shoot any turkey over 10 yards away, and I'm gonna limit out in at least five states next spring! By golly! (Smiley not needed)

this decoy craze is another example of taking the easy way out. hook is correct, a gun on your shoulder, something to sit on, and a few calls is all the equipment needed to kill any turkey in the country, including field birds. there is no comparison to the excitement and challenge of sitting on a naked tree and having that mature bird come in looking for nothing but you. to me, turkey hunting is about working a hard gobbling bird, just off the roost, on his turf and fooling him. i have and do kill em other ways too, but most times i find myself a bit disappointed in the hunt when i do.

Boy, you'd better give up your wayward practices or the state won't even issue you a license! Besides, its really difficult to parachute in carrying a full strut deke under each arm.

You know I was thinking the same thing as I watched some birds feed along side a herd of cattle this past season. They were right out in the middle of the pasture where there wasn't even a twig for cover.
