While I don't turkey hunt I have friends who do. One told me about his hunt last weekend and how he missed a big gobbler. He said he was set up perfect and was all in cammo including his shotgun. The bird was within 5 yards of being dead when it turned and took off. He said he hadn't moved or made a sound. He took the position again and looked at his gun to see if something was on it. He noticed a flash of light and swore. His watch came out from under his sleeve and flashed in the morning sun scaring the tom off. He kicked himself all the way home.

Heard of the same thing happening alot. That is why I never wear a watch. I have also heard about hunters pant legs riding up while they are setting down and the white socks being visable and spooking birds.

I wear black socks and no watch. Also I try to always stay in the shade and have the sun somewhat to my back if possible.
