Howdy fellow Gobbler Grunts!!! My first post went so amazing, figured I'd start a second one. Also, there was so much great information given in the last one, it got pretty long, so didn't want new information to get buried at the end of it. Been spending as much time as possible the last few weeks, researching, thinking about, and trying to sound like Turkey and have come up with what I think are some good "newbie" questions. Scent and Wind - While I'm sure they both play a factor in hunting turkey, are they as big a factor as they are when you are deer/elk/moose hunting? Should you use scent lock clothing and scent killing spray? What about insect repellent? Are the ticks and chiggers out during spring Turkey? Walking in EARLY! - Looks like the dream sequence is, roost a turkey night before, then get in early early the next morning and setup. On the walk in, pre sun up, can you use a flashlight/head lamp to help see where you are going, or will that spook the roosted bird? Once you get setup, and have waited for the woods to calm down, should you use a locator call to try and verify the bird that you roosted last night is still around? Do birds move from roost to roost at night? Corps Land - If accessing by road, if there is no pull off to park your vehicle, can you just pull off the road (where able) out of traffic flow and park? If accessing by boat, is it ok to land your boat on the shore and walk in? What about camping? Could you say boat into an area, and setup a basic camp and hang out for a few days? Or, say you roosted a turkey one evening while out crappie fishing, could you say sleep in your boat (or some other small quick shelter) overnight and go after him in the AM? What about campfires in both situations? Boat motors - If you can't tell, I'm really used to using a boat to get where I need to hunt (thanks to all the years in AK). Does the sound of an outboard bother turkeys? Thinking about how to "sneak" into spots early in the morning. Would it be better to cut your outboard 100 yards off your landing sight and use trolling motor, paddle and momentum to get beached? Can't shoot from a boat at all, right? Terrian - since I'm looking at mostly land that is right next to rivers/lakes, how does that factor in when evaluating and area? Does the presence of a big body of water cause a predicable movement on turkeys? Usually towards the water, away from the water? Does it depend on the topo of the area and how the land enters the water...... steep bluff or gentle slope? Camo - Most of what I have is Mossy Oak Break up. Will that work for spring foliage in central MO? Seems that Mossy Oak Obsession is the color craze right now. Thanks for taking the time to read (and hopefully respond to) this thread.
