  • Youth Turkey Jitters

    Took my 14 year old turkey hunting. Had a great set up this morning...between some hammering gobblers (solid gobbling for 30 minutes prior to fly down, less than 40 yards from us) and vocal hens...3 big ole toms passed by at 30 yards, shotgun blast, 3 ole toms got away. Got our heart rate up for sure! Set back up under their roosting area now...hoping to tag one on the way back to the tree. Will update if successful.

    Very cool! Do you call them or just wait?

    My son is turns 14 in August, we are working on his hunter safety course now.

      This morning started as calling and they were hammering back hard. Once the hens started cutting and yelping I mostly stopped since I knew the gobblers would walk by.

      This evening is more of a sit like deer hunting...most of the season Maryland does not allow evening hunting but they do for youth day

    Watch them fly up to roost this evening...never got in range. Will be at it again in a couple of weeks
