    We set up on this bird 3/22/10, on our ranch lease in Zavala county Texas at 8:30AM. He gobbled once when we first got there and he sounded like he was far away. We continued to call with a box call about every 5 minutes. After about 30 minutes, the bird gobbled the 2nd time and he sounded a lot…

    We set up on this turkey at 8:30 AM on 3/22/10. My buddy Steve Allemand from Katy Texas was doing the calling and the video. We heard the bird gobble a long way off. Steve continued to yelp with his box call. The 2nd time the bird gobbled, he sounded much closer and Steve said get ready he's…

    Great bird, Killadaux. Always nice to share a great hunt with a buddy.

    anyone have some displays they have pics of?
    I think your display has everyone a bit intimedated. I just started turkey hunting recently and all our turkeys disappeared just before deer season and never really returned. All the gobblers I heard were off of our land.

    Glen Peterson took this bird on private property.

    Tyler Peterson harvested his first bird this past weekend down in Adams county.

    Check out the front page for a neat story on a young bride-to-be nabbing her first turkey just before her wedding date.

    Every turkey hunter has come up against those birds that just won't come in. Check out the front-page story from the current issue of Mississippi Sportsman for some tips on scoring even on these tough customers.
    Good read... I hate turkeys. The longer the beard the more I hate'em!

    Got a bird saturday about 3 PM in our dove field literally right across from our camp.

    Got a bird midday saturday and while I was cleaning i looked into his crawl and there were these dark colored things that looked like raisins basically. It looks like small chufa but think it is something else. Just wandering if anybody would have a clue as to what this would be.
    Some sort of seed. Haha, just kidding. Could be just about anything I guess; I don't have a clue.

    Can anyone give me some advice on where to start looking for turkeys on Sandy Creek WMA? I am currently at Delta National Forest and am having no luck. I have 2 days left to hunt and plan to go somewhere else. Any information would be greatly appreciated, even if it is advice on any other WMA…

    Ive never hunted sandy creek but I know people that have. I heard there are turkeys everywhere in there. Are just hunt the forest around knoxville road or freewoods. They always got birds around there butthey may be really educated.

    OK we all know that turkeys like to dust thereselves. There are a few places they regularly do it on the lease I hunt next to my land, but not on my small piece of land. I could easily bring up a bunch of sand out of the little creek and make a sand box (without the box) for the turkeys to play…

It was masterfully called in by Raffe (Mac) McLaughlin. My second year turkey…

    Looking at a quick place to chase turkeys close to home. I am going to the Red Creek area and maybe little Biloxi this weekend to look around. I have never been there. It will be interesting to see how it is in this area. Not wanting to scout via internet incase you wonder but I do like to chase…

    If killing a gobbler with a gun has lost its luster, you might want to try using a bow. Check out the front-page story about archery turkey hunting.

    Friday morning took me for a turkey for the first time this season. Immediately located and got set up in the perfect spot....... Just happened the hens flew down behind me and the roosting toms were in front. Fog was burning off as I could make out three blobs around 60 yards out...... Ol boss…

    Has anyone else been dealing with tight lipped birds? Is it too early for them to be really cranked up? I've been the last 2 mornings. Seen gobblers both mornings. Even killed a 2 year old double bearded tom this morning, but am still yet to hear one gobble.
