man I have shied away from busting up a flock and calling them back, because I like to be undetected till I pull the trigger, I like to ambush, spot and stalk, or use hen talk to call them in. But heck if I get in the right situation I might try busting a flock up just one time.... Here is an article that the NWTF posted on Facebook -

so busting the flock is the only REAL way to fall hunt just like calling a gobbler to the gun is the only REAL way to spring hunt...

but seriously I think I may give it a try this year.

sure I do but when I want the meat I don't care as much about the means as long as it's legal. If I bust the flock it will be more for the hunt than the meat and if I ambush then it's more for the meat. I don't plan to shoot any more off the roost unless I really want one that bad.

sure would not, wild turkey is much healthier than Kroger turkey, and I like knowing I went in the woods and killed something and not just went and bought it. But I assume you are joking... ;\)

about the meat? you don't get that much meat off a 25 lb wild turkey.

what you pay on license fees, shells, camo and such far outcosts what it would be to buy a turkey. several deer in a year would be worth the cost because of the amount of meat but not turkey.

you shot a turkey off the roost because that is what you wanted to do. legal. just don't say it is because it was for the meat. i cannot believe that.
