Think Fanning Turkeys with a Bow is Impossible? Think Again!

If you’re a longtime turkey hunter, consider trying a new technique this season.

The Heads Up decoy allows bowhunters to mount a real turkey fan directly onto their bow. The fan works as both an attractant and a mini blind to hide the hunter’s draw, perfect for fanning turkeys into range of the old stick and string.

Anyone can fan a turkey into gun range, watch the video to see how archers get it done in the turkey woods.

Although I’ve never tried it myself, fanning turkeys looks like an exciting way to fill your tag. By using the Heads Up decoy, archers can see results similar to those of gun hunters.

Whether you hunt with a gun or bow, if you decide to give fanning a turkeys a try this spring, make safety your number one priority. Don’t use the tactic on heavily hunted public land or in areas where rifles are legal for spring gobblers. There’s no turkey that’s worth getting shot in the face.
