Stalking turkey takes skill and patience, as this video shows…
Most turkey hunters pick the best spot and call turkeys to come closer, which takes skill. But that is amplified when you are stalking turkeys.
This hunter plays it a little different and creeps in as close as possible, only calling the last few yards.
As you can see, you need a front-facing decoy to hide behind and a lot of patience if you want to be successful.
It really is a completely different game than how most people hunt turkey. This “scoot-and-shoot” technique does seem to be gaining in popularity, though, as more and more turkey stalking videos are available online.
Have you ever successfully stalked a turkey? Is it something you are going to try?
