I had a very successful turkey season opener this past Saturday up at my place in northern Catahoula Parish. Arrived to my listening spot for 6:00am and at 6:25am I heard my first gobbler sound off along a creek bottom about 300 yards away. I made my way and setup along the creek he was roosted on…

This hunt was in one of my groves in South Florida. Worked the birds hard for 4 days. As you will see there was a lot of hen competition for the Toms. Finally found the route they were taking in the mornings and set up along their path. Please let me know what you…

I put together a little turkey hunting video from last season of my Osceola hunt.

I've hunted Louisiana turkeys for over 20 years and I'm consider heading to a different state. Anyone have any experiences or suggestions? I was thinking Ohio, Kentucky or Tennessee.

Here are 3 places I'm…

Being you've killed Easterns, why not head west after a Rio? Of the states mentioned, Kentucky would be my first choice.

Has anybody out there ever tried to wax a turkey like many hunters do with ducks? My company sells 1000's of lbs. of wax to duck hunters and I was curious if it works on turkey's as well.

Any input is appreciated.

What do mature tom turkeys do in the misting rain? Watch and see.

Anybody see a double beard on the left hand bird. They took 13 pics standing in the same line.

We hunted Saturday & Sunday. Stevie got his first turkey 17 pounds 8 1/2 in beard. He was super excited, and made a great shot. Bird hung up for over 45 minutes. Wouldn't come closer than 50 yards

Sounding realistic is a key element to bringing the biggest, oldest, wisest tom turkeys within shotgun range. World champion turkey caller and top gobbler gunner Preston Pittman shows a unique new item to help hunters collect more of those hard-to-call toms.

Shot this gobbler on a gasline at 1:50 in the afternoon. He was just cruising and eating. Little did he know I was waiting. Hit the Woodhaven Cherry Crystal call and it was over in a matter of minutes. 8' beard, 1 1/8' spurs. Longest spurs yet for me.
Nice bird Congrats!

Made my first spring turkey hunting trip for this year down to my friends ranch in south Texas and had a blast. Arriving just in time to make an evening hunt on April 1st I set out my gobbler and hen decoy and settled in for a long afternoon of calling. Within 15 minutes a hen showed up followed…

Wild turkey hunters who want to master the craft of duping the oldest, biggest, and toughest to call into range gobblers should listen to 5 time World Turkey Calling Champion Preston Pittman about using his simple and deadly Flap & Scratch product.

Rookie turkey hunter and was wondering what y'all prefer. Sitting in a spot covered and brushed up well and call a turkey in or move around until you come up on one? Also what calls are preferred? Thanks
...99% of you moving around will be that he 'sees' you before you 'sees' him...unless he's old w/cataracts and a hearing problem ???...play the stay still sniper game...and get off 'da Chee Weez chips and 'IQ' phone !!! cheers

Sometimes using more than one turkey call is the ticket to success to bringing in a reluctant tom turkey to shotgun range. Five-time Louisiana State turkey calling champion Bruce Salle of 'Talkin' The Talk Custom Calls' shows how it's done.
Thanks for the video Bruce!

Ended up up putting your new glass pot and the swamp hen diaphragm to work last Saturday to tag out in Louisiana.

5-Time World Turkey calling champion Preston Pitman offers a fast, simple and effective way of learning how to make the deadly purr call using a mouth call or diaphragm call.

On my 2nd trip back to south Texas on April 23rd I finished tagging out with my 4th gobbler on the afternoon I arrived at my friends ranch near Crystal City. After a short sit on a small field and calling I was able to capture some great video of 4 Jakes coming up to my decoys and hanging out for…

Still can't believe it but I tagged out on turkeys in Louisiana this year. I shot my first bird on the second day of the season. He played the game and came in just like they do on TV. He was ready, responsive, and I even got to watch him strut before I shot him.

Since then however, the…

Way to hang in there! Thanks for the story, it reminded me of so many of my past turkey hunts in Louisiana only I would get busted or quit too early. You made the right move and the right decision!

Congratulations!
