Go get em! I've never gotten around to hunting them. See turkeys quite often where I deer hunt though so I'm not sure why I haven't tried.

dotman, if you are anything like me and Evan you will be hooked on hunting them when you have one within feet of you at full strut going crazy with all the various body language and sounds they make! It is a rush!

Yea Dotman, turkey hunting is one of my most favorite critters to hunt. Something about springtime. Green warm weather and gobbles. Doesn't get any better!

Yeah my neighbor told me i need to pick up a crow/owl call. I'm getting pretty excited about this. Picked the combo so two tags are in my pocket. Which part of KS are you going to be in? I have a few acres on the wyandotte/johnson county line, close to the ks river.

dotman, no need for a crow call, use an elk reed to locate, that's all I do here in Idaho. I only use a high scream/shrill type pitch, it carries a long ways & unlike an owl it's not a predator sound but they'll shock gobble it like crazy! Good Luck!

And it leaves the Thunder Chickens wondering, "What in the sam hell was that!?"
I have used the same and it works but prefer a crow call.

Jared, critters cannot reason like humans???? The last thing a Turkey would think is "what is that" (grin)
