I just wondered what the TRUE thoughts are on this topic.
I do not want to discuss it anymore, as I am sure few of you do.
Not interested in beating the proverbial dead horse any more.
So Here goes.
I'll b the one who runs toward the flames!! I say keep it the same. For ME they don't need to b movie stars. Oh it's nice that they put on a show but they do that in May aswell. I hunt more with my eyes than ears anyhow.
Now you seasoned vets you can back me on this if you like. THE MORE HE GOBBLES THE MORE LIKELY HE WILL PICK UP A HEN OR CALL IN A YOTE OR TRASPASSER! I know that all of us has had at least one of those come in on a set up. If not give it time.
As for the birds being any easier. I can't answer that. Easy for me is him jumping in my deepfreeze and closing the lid behind him. Now I've had them to come in on a set up a little faster than others but I can't recall any of them being easy at any time of the year. Please don't get mad at me but maybe just maybe we might need to change hunting tactics instead of dates. JMO
This is the most idiotic thing I have ever read on this forum. Do you really think those of us who like to hunt in May are sitting in blinds, and have never learned or experienced how to hunt turkeys by calling and setting up on a located bird? If so, you need to venture out more and type on a computer much less. The above statement is so laughbly off base, that it almost isn't worth even acknowledging.Spring turkey season historically is about calling a bird...hearing gobbles....its all part of the experience. Toms in early season with hens (henned up) have been hunted and called in since the indians chased them with bows & arrows in Ky....its not that hard to do & part of the challenge. Way more than sitting in a blind in May waiting on silent birds with no interest to responding to calls....strictly ambush style. I also say that unfortunately too many people have accepted that this is the best way & time of the year to hunt toms.... they have never learned or experienced how to hunt them with the origional "tatics" of spring turkey hunting as its ment to be.
