The reality for most turkey hunters is that we only have few farms or small bush lots where we can hunt. The classic fall ‘scatter and call back’ method can go bad fast on small hunting grounds because it makes the flocks more wary and can drive them out of your area all together. On small hunting grounds it’s far better to pattern the flocks on their daily route, set up along that route and pull them into range with realistic calling. In the spring, a squeaking car door can call in a jake or a suicidal two year old tom. I know because I’ve done it. But fall turkeys won’t be fooled by poor calling. Practice calling till your calls are realistic if you plan to hunt this fall.
