“Outdoor Life’s Complete Turkey Hunting”
Thirty-four of the nation’s best turkey hunters and turkey callers, past and present, have filled this hard-backed book with their knowledge and wisdom. You’ll learn tactics from some of the early pioneers of the sport of turkey hunting, during the time that the wild turkeys were just being reintroduced into many states. You’ll also learn, from some of the best turkey hunters of today, how to deal with too-many gobblers and too-many hens coming in at the same time, or one old tough tom that no one seems to be able to take. You’ll read stories of out-of-the-box thinking when you’re called on to take a super-smart turkey.
You’ll learn about the origin of the mouth call, about teaming up on toms, and what to do when patience nearly dies. Many hunters can tell you how to fire-up a gobbler, but in this book Gary Stillwell will tell you why you’ll often have to cool-down a tom to take him. You’ll also learn how to take a turkey without using a call, why you can bag gobblers while taking a nap, and how to hunt bad-weather birds, pasture toms and swamp turkeys, as well as specific techniques for Merriam’s and Rio Grande gobblers. You’ll learn how to map out your way to turkey hunting success, how to take turkeys at high noon and when to use the Double-Circle Technique on tough gobblers.
The experts in this book illustrate their strategies by telling stories about when, where and how these methods have worked for them and will work for you. If you’ve never hunted turkeys before, “Outdoor Life’s Complete Turkey Hunting” will tell you how to get started, the equipment you’ll need, and how you can go into the woods within a day or two of purchasing a turkey call and be successful. If you’re a veteran turkey hunter, this book will give you solutions to solving tough turkey-hunting problems, and if you enjoy reading stories about exciting hunts and interesting turkey hunts, this book has chapters for you too. These many reasons are why the book is titled, “Outdoor Life’s Complete Turkey Hunting.”
