I would say my number one tip would be find a farm that is loaded with turkeys. Everything else will take care of itself. They are dumb.

I have found over 20+ years and almost 200 dead longbeards, that a bird which gobbles on his own is far more likely to die than one that has to be shocked or beaten into sounding off.


I started 14 years ago and I only hunt Tennessee so I ain't killed anywhere near 200, but for birds still in the trees, my experience has been exactly the opposite. I'll always have a locator call for this reason.

A bird that free gobbles on his own after fly down is far easier to kill than a bird which has to be beaten into gobbling with locator calls. As many times the one that has to be helped has hens or is subordinate. While the free gobbler is generally alone and has gone to an area they feel comfortable to strut and seek out company.


This has been my experience with birds on the ground too.

Weather is a key factor as well.

Someone once explained to me that it is kind of like watching a ballgame. If you cheer and scream for your team, you don't feel like talking the next day.

Trust me I know, and are you seriously going to take a thread designed to help folks into an oppty to talk trash to me? I am certainly game, but by all means start a new topic if you want to talk trash. Let this one serve it's purpose.

my best advice to give you is to take up fishing!!! these crazy things will drive you CRAZY!!!! you will see birds gobble their guts out all day one day and the next nothing !!! it has alot to do with weather and barometric pressure !! Heck a coyote could be within eyesight of the birds and shut up on the limb..they could still be talking and you would not have a clue... they make over 20 different vocalazations that we cant hear with our natural ear.. you never know....Setterman being a biologist can tell you all this though :-) !!if you wanna learn alot about turkeys watch a PBS series called My life as a Turkey....
