Guidelines for a Successful Fall Turkey Hunt

The first step towards enjoying a successful fall hunt is to find a place to hunt.

Your state or provincial wildlife agency can help you identify public hunting land. If you need to find your wildlife agency contact information, just click this wildlife agency contacts link.

If you plan to hunt private land, make sure you get the landowner's permission before hunting or scouting.

Wherever you decide to hunt, make the most of your time afield by spending time before your season opens learning the lay of the land and where the birds like to be.

Once you pinpoint were the birds roost and where they head during the day to feed, plan a strategy that puts you along their travel routes.

Next, head to the range and test your shotgun to make sure you're shooting a tight, dense pattern. Learning how to accurately judge number of yards, and making sure your turkey load performs well at different distances can mean the difference in bagging a bird and watching one sail off into the woods.

Practice calling. Communicating with a wild turkey to work it to the gun is a thrilling experience. Today's market offers a variety of calls — everything from mouth calls to box calls to pot and peg calls and more.
