We know that hunting and story telling usually go hand in hand, but if you really want to know how to tell a turkey hunting story, you need to watch this video.
Everyone knows that there are many different methods of telling hunting (and fishing) stories. There is of course the one that got away, this type of story is the one with the most “wiggle room” for the hunter/story teller simply because there is no proof of any part of the story.
These can be some of the best stories, but they can also be the ones that are furthest from the truth.
Then you have success stories. These usually start out pretty close to what actually happened and then, depending on the hunter, get more and more dramatic with each re-telling.
But if you really want to know how to tell a turkey hunting story then I think we can all take a lesson or two from the hunters who made the video below.
In my opinion that’s more than just story telling, that’s a full on performance; and one they should be proud of.
Maybe instead of just giving out a prize for the biggest kill this season, your hunting clubs can also start a new prize for best storytelling. I would love to see what everyone can come up with.
