1. Scout more. Scouting should be about putting birds to bed and learning where they go during the day.
Try to observe travel patterns from afar. Plan your setup where the birds will be, whether it's in the open or the woods.

2. When hunting with decoys, put them out at 10-15 yards from your set up and 5-10 if your bow hunting in a blind.

3. Have a bunch of different calls with you ( push/pull, slate, box and mouth )

4. Keep your calling soft and low when the birds get close with soft purrs and cuts.

5. Face your decoy away from the direction you expect the turkey to come ( facing you ). He will work his way around

to face the decoy, presenting you with a good shot.

6. Set up in the shade, turkeys are looking for movement and unnatural shine.

7. Do not over call.

8. Check your camo to make sure it is not faded as it will not be as effective.

9. During rains, low green grass fields and open areas are your best bet.

10. The third day in a row of nice weather days always seem to be good for turkey hunting.

11. 20k winds or greater, the birds will be out in the fields and open areas.

12. Turkeys will seek out the leeward or low sides of a field for shelter on very windy days.

13. Most turkeys are killed between the hours of 9a.m. and 2p.m.

14. Learn the lay of the land you are going to hunt. Log all turkey sign such as dusting areas, strut zones.

Drag marks indicate a stut zone. J-hooked droppings are left by the males. A lot of wing feathers at the base of a tree

indicates a roosting site.

15. Just like deer, turkeys will pattern you if they see you walking around. Don't park your vehicle in or near the field you are going to hunt.

16. Patience
