When you’re hunting turkeys this spring, better be certain your target is a Tom.
This infographic from the awesome folks at Zero to Hunt will help you identify your big bird. Check out this infographic that will tell you if that turkey is indeed a Tom!
You are up at the crack of dawn. Sitting in full camouflage against a large gnarled tree you wait until legal hunting time and then load your shotgun. A few minutes later you begin calling out into the wilds like a love struck hen turkey. Then it happens.
Movement catches your eye coming in through the thick brush. It certainly is not another hunter but a large bird. Your turkey tag is for Toms only. How do you tell if that plump bird will become your next prize and a tasty meal? Our friend Ryan Lisson over at Zero To Hunt has shared a great infographic that describes the differences between Toms and hens.
Make sure you positively identify your bird before you fire. This infographic is a great way to brush up on your identifying skills since last season.
