Turkey Vest info...

I’ts been years since I’ve bought a new vest, and even then I still used my older ones! I like the older vests more, the quality is a lot better, and I’ve always liked older camo patterns. The vest I’m currently using is an older Mossy Oak Elite Vest, I’m pretty sure it was the 1st Elite Model vest,...

Re: Are turkeys going the way of the quail

I heard Eddie Salter talk about this recently at a local sporting goods store in Kentucky. He made a good point, he said that insects are a large part of a wild turkeys diet and now days a lot of pesticides are being sprayed in fields where they weren't before. He specifically mentioned Alabama whe...

Re: Are turkeys going the way of the quail

I know for me gobbling activity isn’t the only way I gather information on how many turkeys are in an area. I look for tracks in the mud holes or tracks on soft dirt, dust bowls , feathers , strut marks , droppings , scratching areas and sightings. I don’t think some of the inexperienced hunters ev...

Re: Are turkeys going the way of the quail

Here’s something else that I’ve alwsys thought about as well when it comes to talk about declining turkey numbers. We all have a network of turkey hunters that we talk to or with regularly during the season. We’ve already established that there are more hunters in the woods in the spring now than ev...

Re: Are turkeys going the way of the quail

This has been a HOT topic in my area for the last decade or so. I remember hearing about it as far back as 12-15 years ago, and not really paying it much mind, at the time the hunting was awesome in my areas. I remember going back in those days and if I didn’t hear at least 5 different birds, it was...

Re: Dumb idea or not

I think you’ll be fine parking your vehicle and then covering it with some kind of material. A lot of places I hunt are similar to what you’re talking about, huge fields and wide open areas where the birds can see you coming long before you see them. And IME as well, you’re correct about birds spook...

Re: Pregnant

I'm beginning to think they breed year round here in North Florida. I barely seen a rut last year. Pretty sure it's because we had like 1 frost. It was hot all hunting season. I'm still seeing fawns. Yep same here. I usually see spotties up until about mid-late November, and usually those spots are...

I would love to retire to somewhere close to Meridian, Mississippi or just on the Alabama side which is not too far away from Meridian. 5 gobblers in Alabama and 3 for Mississippi each Season if I could bag them all!!!

Re: Number Of Wild Turkeys--What Is Your Goal In A Season??

I'm not much of a numbers guy when it comes to turkey hunting, I prefer quality over quantity. With that said I try and fill all tags available to me each spring, here in AL that number is 5. I'd love to be able to tag out each year, and some years are better than others, however I'll never reach #2...

Re: They're out there...

I agree they should have had a bucket or stringer handy, i thought I remember someone saying they were getting a bucket to put the fish in after it was caught? It really wouldn't have mattered in this case as the mob was ready to jump regardless!

I like the Western Kentucky idea as well. Weather would be good, not unbearable winters, still in a good location as far as travel goes, gulf coast beaches are doable. Although I'd like a few more tags the deer and turkey hunting is awesome, and you're still in the Miss-uh-sip flyway, get the best o...
