First Real Hunt
Posted 22 April 2006 - 06:04 PM
I've been invited to my older brothers camp for spring gobbler here in central Pa.
and decided to give it a try. Been thinking about it for a number of years. Got my first box call at Wal-Mart the other week and have done alot of practing( I hope the turkey like it better than the wife) .
Season starts in one week and I'am afriad that I'am already getting the bug!
Anybody got any sure fire tips they would be greatly welcomed :o)
Hope to have some picturers to post.
Wish everone a safe and happy hunting season.
Mike from cenral Pa.

9 out of 10 gobblers I've killed come in silent. If you here a bird they usually aren't moving. If he stops sqawking and has answered you once. Odds are very good he'll make an appearance if you just shut up.
Bring you binoculars and use your eyes. Depending too much on audible responses from the birds is a guaranteed path to frustration and failure.

There's quite a few here from central PA. Most of us have stumbled into a gobbler or two , so if you ever feel like meeting the gang or possiblity hook up for a hunt we're usually around here most everyday....( Jerimiah is the guy for advice on PA turkeyhunting!)

Purchased a box call last week and can see that this is just one of the collection that I will be working with.
Would like to add that from reading thru the articles on that site that there is a group of great hunters and great people that are more than willing to share their knowlege with other hunters.
Also thanks to Jerimiah for posting the calling sounds and different kinds of calls.
Thanks for the response from Phil. Leo. and Ironranger!
Look forward to sharing stories with everone.
God Bless and Safe hunting !!!!!!
Mike :D :D :D
