Here we are in February with cold temps and snow on the ground, but we all know the woods will soon be heating up with the lovelorn gobbles of the American wild turkey! For many of us reading this article, it is a sickness. A sickness we are proud to have acquired and while I have never been on the receiving end of a bugling elk on a New Mexico mountainside, I have been point blank with a dominant gobbler as he closes the distance and struts into range. For a Midwest boy like me there is not anything to compare it with. It is just awesome!
As we prepare to move into the turkey woods let me remind you that it is, in fact, the “turkey’s woods.” They live there and know how to use every rolling hill, draw, creek bottom and ridge top to their advantage. Let me also remind you they can see better than you, hear better than you and run faster than you which gives them a distinct advantage in their ability to survive.
High premiums need to be placed on camouflage, stealth and alertness. It is one thing to get into position before the sun comes up. It is something else altogether to run and gun when that gobbler has dug in his spurs and refuses to come to you. Moving quickly yet quietly through the woods is more than an art form; it also requires some physical tools.
