Safety Really Is First.

It only takes one small mistake to ruin the rest of your season. It's best to focus on what you’re doing and how you’re doing it:

> Don’t wear red, white, blue or black clothing.

> Use your camo top to bottom. 

> Make sure you have 180 degrees of visibility. 

> Position yourself behind wide bases of trees.  

> Identify with your voice, not your hands. 

> Travel orange so others can see you.

Find great hunting opportunities: 

The U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service offers an interactive map to find areas where and when you can hunt for various species like turkey. 

         > This tool will allow you to see acreage, open/closed, and hunting availability 

         > Uses the Google Maps API - Information will be up to date  

In Canada, wild turkey hunting is limited to these 4 provinces: Manitoba, Ontario, Québec, and British Columbia.  

         > Look-up the province for approved hunting dates. (Ontario's Turkey Huniting Dates)

         > Use your WMU Map to make sure you're staying in approved turkey hunting areas.

Practice your Turkey Calls 
  • Turkey calls are important tools to keep them interested in your area  or if you notice a call that may require you to take other actions.  

    Checkout the National WildTurkey Federation’s website for Denny Gulvas’s "Wild Turkey Sounds".

Scout your area 
  • Timing is everything when it comes to making the correct calls and pulling the trigger. You can be more effective by remote livestreaming with a Spartan GoLive to scout the area prior to arriving to the hunt.
