Ray Eye knows how to talk to turkeys. Having 300 birds roosted nearby like he did on this winter turkey hunt helps too.
Think spring gobbler hunting is the only way to have fun in the turkey woods? Think again. This winter turkey hunt illustrates just how crazy and exciting things can be while chasing birds in the fall and winter. Add in the fact that in most areas you can harvest any turkey and you’ve got a recipe for a lot of fun in the field and some gobbler hot wings on the table.
Watch the video to see if this is something you would like to try.
As you can see in the video, hunting fall and winter turkeys is a great way to hear wild turkey vocalizations and learn from the birds.
If you’re new to hunting turkeys outside the breeding season, know that the key to finding them in the fall and winter is to find their food source. In areas with limited roosting habitat, like southeast Kansas where this video was taken, it’s not uncommon for turkeys to form huge flocks like the one you just saw.
After you’ve found the birds, making the right calls will help you hang your tag on a feathered trophy of your own.
