Bowhunting turkey isn’t the parlor trick many believe. Heck, I’ve shot 60 gobblers with my bow to this point, and know absolutely I’ll be shooting another in a couple weeks when Idaho’s spring season opens. I’m not even close to being a champion turkey caller, or the best shot around, or even a very patient man when it comes right down to it. In other words, basic skills get the job done, with the right gear and approach.
<h2>FIND SOME BIRDS!</h2>Most importantly you need a decent place to hunt. Not the lease where birds get shot up on opening morning, or the farm where your entire family and five cousins belabor turkeys. You need a place that receives light hunting pressure, either an exclusive piece of private ground, somewhere far from population centers or even isolated ground requiring some hiking. You need multiple opportunities in this business. You need birds that aren’t totally educated.
