Field Turkeys
« on: February 23, 2010, 05:33:00 PM »
I was told field turkeys are the hardest thing to hunt.  So, do I try calling or do I try ambushing.   I have alot of turkeys, I really would like to call one up to me instead of ambushing.  I would like to take my first tom by calling him up.

cookin,

small advice addition.  if you know where the tom's stutting and feeding areas are, its alot easier to call them where they want to go.
