Outdoors: Wise gobblers turn the tables on a few recent turkey hunts
Spring gobbler hunting can be downright addictive.
I love duck hunting because there is so much action and shooting. Not so with turkey hunting. You probably won’t shoot as many shotgun shells all season long as you can hold in the palm of your hand.
To be successful in bringing a tom to the gun, you have to love turkey hunting and you have to hunt lots of days.
On most of the hunts, the turkey wins. If he has lived through several springs and experienced some close encounters with hunters he becomes very wise and wary. Sometimes he makes a real fool of you.
