    Re: Wild Turkeys

    We have them all over the place here in Valley Springs. They do a good job of fertilizing but also leave a big mess on the sidewalk/driveway. I am still fascinated by their beauty and survivability, tho.

    Wild Turkeys

    In only three weeks or so it will be time to get out and start scouting for Turkeys. Don't call much, if at all. If they are around they will let you know. Don't call at all if you have a small area to hunt. The turkeys are smart and if you call them in and blow it they will remember your calling when the season comes and they will be less likely to come to your calling when it go time. The birds make a lot of noise when the breeding season first begins (usually early in February). Be patient and just listen. They will let you know if they are there. A mixed flock of Turkeys makes a lot of noise. If you find them early in the breeding season there will be at least a few in the area when the hunting season starts. Good luck!
