Even experts make mistakes. John Higley believes an expert is a person of experience who can’t prevent some things from going wrong but can tell you, with authority, why they did.
With help from Preston Pittman and Matt Morrett, came up with 5 lessons hunters often learn over and over again. We must remind ourselves of things that can hamper our attempts to call a wary tom into range.
- If you don’t have time to set out a decoy properly, don’t use it at all.
- When a tom goes quiet, and you know other turkeys in the area can hear you, waiting may be the best move of all.
- Even when you set up in a hurry, make sure you can aim your shotgun or draw your bow without interference.
- Beware of crawly things, mosquitoes and undesirable plants.
- Make sure you can see.
