In NINE sleeps I will be stepping out into the turkey woods for opening day of the 2015 Alabama Spring Turkey Season; it is always with much anxiety that I count down the days, never knowing what the season will bring. I will spend Sunday in our gear room preparing my turkey vest for the new season. I have already broken-in my Danner Pronghorn snake boots from being stored all year by wearing them this past weekend doing some scouting. I have a thump of gear I will be taking with me to the woods this season for product reviews. Starting this weekend with the T.O.M. Targets and then I will be carrying several brands of calls into the woods with me; YAK Game Calls, B&C Custom Turkey Calls, Flatline Custom Turkey Calls to name a few. I will be taking some great decoys in the field with me from Avian-X and Dakota Decoy and even the new rage, the Turkey Fan.
I have already started dreaming of the “El Jefe”…I can’t wait to dance with him. I have studied up on decoy use and published an article; Using Turkey Decoys for Success. I have even visited with two of my favorite turkey hunters, Eddie Salter and Preston Pittman and brushed up on my tips and tactics–the article should run next week and I will post it here as well.
Let the TURKEY GYPSY CHRONICLES begin…….
