Hunting Late Season Toms by Grant Woods


No Comments

If a tom responds to my call during the late season I often don’t call much more. Two and four legged predators have chased turkeys for months and the surviving toms tend to be very alert. Given all this, my late season strategy is to locate a tom and set up in an area where […]
