Seems to work for me



I was dressing out a turkey in my back yard and when I looked up, momma was heading in my direction. I checked the trail camera later and this is what I was faced with:



I went back into my house, go my DSLR and took these:



When I noticed mama was pushing the kids up the tree and communing back to me, I returned to my house!

After the bears left and I dressed out the bird, I tossed the carcass back into the woods and this is what the camera caught:

Yes I do , they are great for checking to see when they are in the field that you hope to hunt . Turkeys are a creature of nature and have a set pattern of travel for the day . If you can find out when they are in a area you can set up a camera on a trail and you can then time them and when they will be there within a hour or so . In fact they many times are on the same trails that deer use all year long .

I use them to scout out area's to Hunt for Tom's, I mount my Camera's lower then when I am scouting for Deer.
Problem is the Birds don't always show up when you think you have them pattern.
