Spring Turkey Tactics, Part 1 by Melissa Bachman

Next, if you don’t have a location to hunt, take a little time to go looking for fields with turkeys already on them.  Find out who owns the property and start knocking on doors asking for permission to hunt turkeys in the upcoming weeks.  Many times you’ll find people are more apt to let turkey hunters in than deer hunters, so it doesn’t hurt to ask!

When the day finally arrives, make sure you’re in the field plenty early.  There’s no such thing as too early when turkey hunting.  You want to ensure you don’t spook the birds off the roost, and by getting in early you let everything settle down and will hopefully go un-noticed.

Finally, all turkey hunters are in luck this year as Winchester has come out with the LongBeard XR in 20-gauge! This is great news as now there is a lower recoil option while still utilizing all the benefits of the Shot-Lok technology and everything else the LongBeard XR has to offer.
