ssgturkey4I’ve killed a lot of turkeys and called up a lot of turkeys, and I still just about pass out when I’m getting to shoot one. It’s that exciting. Only a turkey hunter knows what I’m talking about. If you haven’t ever tried it, you should. If you do turkey hunt, you know what I mean.

Really, turkey hunting is my favorite kind of hunting. I started with I was 15 or 16 and fell in love with it pretty fast.

If your heart isn’t pounding and you aren’t shaking, you must be dead.

It’s an awful lot like a combination of deer hunting and duck hunting. You set up and get the turkey to come to you by calling. You have to be still and quiet, but you have to be right on with the call.
