Turkey Flock

Recommended Posts

Here in ky my season starts saturday since im a youth. I went out sunday morning before church to do some scouting and I found one flock with 9 gobblers strutting in it with about 40-50 hens. This could be the biggest flock of turkeys I've ever hunted in the spring. Last year I used a pretty boy decoy with great success. Almost every bird I saw came running after it. All these groups were small though, usually just a couple of gobblers and a few hens. Does anyone know if that decoy will work as well with a group this large? I'm thinkin that at least one of these birds should come after it. But who knows, they might even split up before saturday.

The decoy may actually work,if the group is still intact and sorting out the pecking order. A "new gobbler" off on his own may provide just the right motivation for a tough-guy tom to come over and show him who is boss.The only thing he'll find is some hot lead. Good Luck, I hope everything works out for you.

it should work great. It might be a good time to bring your hunting buddy and a video camera because you may double up!!!

well, i got bad news today. I thought i was going to be able to youth but i found out that i couldnt. in the hunting guide the way it was worded i thought i was able to youth hunt, but just to make sure i got on the internet to read it on there and it sounded like i couldn't. one of my friends called our local game warden yesterday and the game warden said that i could hunt. just to make certain though, my dad called the ky dept. of fish and wildlife today. they said that i couldnt. i think is stupid though, partly b/c i can't hunt but also b/c i can buy a youth permit and license but i cant youth hunt. i think thats pretty stupid but i guess ill just have to follow the law and not start season until the next saturday. im not too worried though b/c i think i still wont have too much trouble finding that big ole longbeard. good luck to everyone else who gets to start this weekend or has already got to start.

i hate u...:D
