Fall Turkey Hunting Techniques

Fall Turkey Hunting Techniques Differ From Spring Turkey Hunting And What You Need To Know

Turkey hunting is a much loved activity. And although it is more associated with spring, fall turkey hunting is just as favorable. But to have a successful hunt, a hunter must possess a flexible way of thinking and adaptive approaches that differ completely from spring turkey hunting. Moreover, this hunter should bear in mind that a fall turkey is different from a spring turkey. The way turkeys act in fall is different from the way they act in spring. During the spring season, the main focus of these birds is propagation. But during the fall season, their main focus changes to feeding and flocking.

So, this hunter must look in places where turkeys eat when he goes fall turkey hunting. He must also look in places where they rest. These places are most probably the exact places they occupy in spring. Then, he may also use the traditional fall turkey hunting technique which is known as flock busting. This technique works by locating a flock and breaking it up. Such break-up may be done by the hunter himself or by his dog. He or his dog has to scatter the turkeys in different directions. And once they have been scattered, he can then use his turkey call and recall the flock. Nonetheless, this turkey call must be appropriate for fall turkey hunting. Usually, the kee kee call is used to recall a turkey family. Kee kees are actually the call of young turkeys. And such calls are mostly answered by mother hens or turkey siblings. Then again, cluck calls and yelp calls may also be used to recall a flock of hens. And gobbler yelps may be used to recall a flock of gobblers.

The hunter also has to remember that scouting is the key for separating flocks. So, he needs to determine the turkeys' food source and locate this area. Then, he can check for tracks and droppings. He can also look around water holes and roosting spots. And once he has found the signs, he can go to his hunting area to wait for the turkeys. The best time he can use this fall turkey hunting technique is during the late afternoon or just before sundown. The turkeys, after being alone all evening, will be very eager to come together at sunup. On the other hand, flushing the turkeys off their roosting spot at sunup is also a good option.
