Turkey Gear for Bowhunters

Turkey Gear for Bowhunters

Ready to hunt longbeards? Here's a look at some of the top turkey gear for bowhunters that you'll want with you on your next hunt.

McKenzie Natra-Look Gobbling Turkey Target

Zero in on a McKenzie Natra-Look Gobbling Turkey Target ($179.99) and bag your bird every time a shot presents itself. The 20-inch high target (at the shoulder) is tough and durable, while the DuraFlex foam midsection helps ensure long service and easy arrow removal. Ultraviolet light won't damage the 20-pound target either. Specify ASA or IBO scoring when ordering.

Carry Lite's Pretty Mama & Bob'n Tail Decoys

Pair Carry Lite's Pretty Mama feeding hen decoy ($34.99) with a Bob'n Tail strutting tom decoy ($59.99) to lure gobblers into range. Pretty Mama's head was molded from an actual, freeze-dried hen head, while the Bob'n Tail's fan moves so naturally it dispels any doubts a wary old tom might harbor. Each Bob'n Tail comes with decoy, fan, carrying bag and stake.

Knight & Hale's Metal Yell

Knight & Hale's Metal Yell all-Aluminum Friction Turkey Call ($34.99) is totally weatherproof from the bottom of its pot to the top of its calling surface. Drive gobblers crazy with high-volume yelps, the softest of purrs and everything in between. A purpleheart striker, which is included, will create realistic calls every time you venture into the woods.

Primo Hook Hunter Series

The Hook Hunter series of diaphragm calls by Primos ($14.99 each) is constructed with premium gauge reeds that are cut by hand. The Long Hook with its Upper Cut diaphragm creates raspy yelps; the Sharp Hook with Spike Cut is a more universal, do-everything call; and the 2-Inch Hook with Ghost Cut requires just a small volume of air to operate yet delivers pitch-perfect lost calls and purrs every time.

Cabela's Realtree AP Camouflage

Lightweight and versatile Realtree AP camouflage clothing from Cabela's will help you blend in any situation. Perfect for warm, spring days afield are Cabela's Microtex Lite Six-Pocket Pants ($69.99), Cabela's Microtex Lite 7-Button Shirt ($59.99), Cabela's Camoskinz Unlined Gripper Dot Gloves ($19.99), Cabela's Camoskinz Facemask ($19.99) and Cabela's Lightweight Mesh-Backed Cap ($14.99). Prices may vary depending on size.

Real Avid's Turkey Tool

Real Avid's Turkey Tool ($39.99) truly is an all-around turkey-hunting solution. Its been designed to incorporate a saw for trimming underbrush and helping to field dress game, a knife, choke wrench, pin punch, carry hook and a beard and spur ruler. A tough, handy sheath is also included.

Redhead's Bucklick Creek Turkey Lounger

Redhead's Bucklick Creek Turkey Lounger ($79.99) is totally comfortable and undeniably functional. It's not only a vest, it's an instant chair that can be used anywhere, even where no trees exist for back support. Made of a water-resistant, micro-denier fabric, the vest is designed with pockets for two slate calls, two mouth calls and a box call. A large accessory pocket, shell loops, hydration bladder compatibility and a decoy bag complete this must-have product.

Magnus Bullhead Broadhead

Put a thumping on any gobbler by tipping up with a Magnus Bullhead Broadhead ($39.95 per 3-pack). The deadly efficient Magnus 3-Blade Bullhead was engineered to produce devastating head and neck shots on turkeys. The 125-grain version has a beefy, 3'‰ 3/4-inch cutting diameter, while the 100-grain version has a 2'‰3⁄4-inch cutting diameter. Either will get the job done right!

HuntMore\'s 360-degree Blind Chair

HuntMore's 360-degree Blind Chair ($219) has plenty of features ground blind bowhunters will love, like big feet that grip the ground firmly and steadily, adjustable legs that are easy to level, a backrest and silent 360-degree rotation. The 8.5-pound chair is collapsible and comes with its own packable carry sack.

Ameristep's Carnivore Ground Blind

Reign supreme in Ameristep's Carnivore Ground Blind ($329.99). The poly-cotton outer shell reduces noise and sheen, while the ground skirt helps contain scent. The 74-inch wide, 66-inch high bind has six windows for 180-degree viewing. Other features include shoot-through mesh and a custom backpack-style carrying case with bow-carrying attachment. Measures 9 inches wide by 47 inches long when packed and weighs 22 pounds.
