How to Hunt Turkeys in the Spring: Tips from the Pros


Spring is a great time for hunting. The weather is mild, and the scenery is beautiful. With turkey season fast approaching, now’s the perfect time to prepare yourself for a successful hunt.

Scout your area

One of the most important things to do before you start hunting turkeys in spring is scouting your area. You need to get familiar with the terrain, and locate where turkeys are roosting at night and feeding during the day. Look for signs like feathers, tracks or droppings that indicate their presence.

Use decoys

Using decoys can be an effective way of attracting turkeys during Spring hunts. Decoys simulate another bird so they entice birds out into view while attempting to attract a mate through sight as well as sound calling techniques.

Choose your gear wisely

The right gear can make all the difference when it comes to turkey hunting in spring. A shotgun loaded with 3-inch magnum shells will give you enough power to drop a mature tom from around 40 yards away or closer without spooking them away.

Choosing camouflage clothing that blends in perfectly with natural surroundings is also essential; camo hats gloves boots backpacks etc., will greatly improve chances of success because these birds have excellent eyesight making it imperative not just blend-in but effectively hide movement too!

In conclusion, Turkey hunting in spring requires some preparation – scouting your area beforehand, using decoys when necessary & choosing adequate gear – there’s no guarantee of success due but taking these precautions increases probabilities immensely!
