When gobblers are ganged up early in the season, the bird not doing the aggressive strutting and gobbling is often the dominant bird. Shoot the lookers
15 Views - Posted: Yesterday at 7:00 am

Early in the season, gobblers will often be grouped in pairs or larger groups. Seeing several toms coming into decoys gobbling every step can be one of the most exciting sights of any hunter’s season.


Use a locator call late in the season, and if a gobbler responds, set up quickly and call him in with a hen call. Make use of locator calls as season progresses

Locator calls are an important of any turkey hunter’s arsenal, especially from mid-season to the final day of the season.


Hunters often find that mid-day and afternoon hunts on public lands can be more productive because most of their competition has left the woods and given birds a chance to settle down. More turkey tips

Hunters have a unique opportunity to take turkeys during rainy weather because their behavior is more predictable and one of their sharpest senses is dulled. Bad weather, good hunting

For a species with a brain the size of a walnut, wild turkeys are fairly clever at avoiding the talons or the teeth of predators, but their poor sense of smell allows hunters and other predators to take a few turkeys each year.


Choose from a variety of calls and become proficient with several; your turkey hunting success will improve. Have a wide assortment of calls ready

Veteran hunter and call-maker John Tanner said that in the middle to late portion of the season, it is often one specific tone or pitch from a call that will make a gobbler respond and approach your position.


Guide Chris Orvin said that gobblers in the Francis Marion National Forest are starting to separate from the hens and start gobbling better. Guide says national forest gobblers are starting to pick up

The first week of the turkey season was disturbingly quiet in the Francis Marion National Forest, but that has changed dramatically late last week. Guide Chris Orvin spends a lot of time in the national forest hunting longbeards, and he said that normally the first week of the April season is great, but that’s not been the case this year. However, things appear to be getting better.


Noel Miller killed this unusual all-white turkey gobbler on youth-day in Dillon County last Saturday. Dillon County youth bags all-white gobbler on youth-day

After a torrential storm flooded half of Dillon County last Friday night, 15-year-old Noel Miller dropped the hammer on a truly-rare gobbler the next morning. It was no ordinary, long-bearded stud; with the exception of his long, black beard and pink head, it was completely white.  


Turkey gobblers can change from extremely vocal to almost silent over the course of a month-long spring season. Early season tactics won’t get you much after the first week of South Carolina’s turkey season.

Hunting turkeys effectively through an entire season is one of the biggest challenges for a hunter — emphasis on effectively. 


Hunting pressure is the biggest obstacle to taking public-land turkeys. Here’s how to overcome it in the Carolinas. Millions of acres of public land gives hunters in the Carolinas a real shot at a turkey gobbler this month -- if they’re up to the task.

In many places, spring means many things to many people, but for the diehard hunter who calls the Carolinas home, it’s full of sitting, listening and stalking a gobbling tom. It’s turkey season, and the millions of acres of public land across the two states are perfect places to bag a longbeard. Even though public lands receive a lot of hunting pressure, a hunter who knows the ins and outs of hunting them has a good chance to bring home a 20-pound bird.

The Lightning Crow from Flextone Game Calls produces ultra-realistic, natural sounds that can be heard for miles. This long-range turkey call forces even the most tight-lipped birds to expose their position. The flexible body also allows the user to manipulate the tone and pitch to sound like multiple crows, making it an ideal locator call for crows also.

Patterning allows you to learn which shotguns throw the best pattern for turkey hunting. Turkey patterns and cleaning tips

In turkey hunting, preparation is everything.

So thinking about you guys (and gals) who get all heated up over feathers in the spring, I thought I would write about patterning — and cleaning your guns.

I have a 12 gauge, 2 ¾-inch-chambered barrel I had cut off years ago to about 25 inches and had the gunsmith install screw-in choke tubes.


Terry Hiers and two very happy hunters pose with a trio of Blackwater gobblers. Hiers believes that overall woodsmanship is the most-important factor in hunting turkeys, but he’s not opposed to using some unique calls when the situation presents itself. Unusual calls and fighting purrs
157 Views - Posted: March 15 at 8:00 am

Terry Hiers is an expert with most any call made, but he does have some he saves for specific situations.

“I never go to the turkey woods without a tube call,” he said. “They are loud and have the ability to be heard long distances, so they also make excellent locator calls, but they can be so subtle. There’s a huge range of calls that a hunter can make with these calls, based on the situation you’re in. They are good in the wind and unaffected by rain or cold or heat. They have a distinctive sound that is often unique to a hard-worked gobbler. I’ve used it on many occasions to take a bird that was call-shy.
