Turkey hunting when done correctly, and ethically is one the best and most gratifying pastimes we have the privelege of taking part in. It's a challenging and respectful pursuit that makes us better hunters and better woodsman. It drives us to be better conservationist and stewards of the natural resources we've been given to manage. In this episode we discuss, what we perceive to be, one of the biggest threats to turkey hunting and what we all can do to change that.
Today's episode is about as live action as it gets. We're talking about a successful hunt that happened this very morning! Every turkey that you get a chance to kill is special, no doubt, but when it's an old long spurred gobbler that you've been after for several seasons, it makes it a little more sweet. That's exactly what we were able to do this morning, and we want to go over the decisions and moves we made that put us in the position to kill him.
Part of what makes turkey hunting so worthy of our obsession is the extreme highs and extreme lows that it offers. There's no in between. You're either on top of a mountain after a few great hunts, or fighting frustration because you just can't seem to make it all come together. We experience an emotional turkey roller coaster this week, and are luckily still here to tell the tale. We have missed turkeys, spooked turkeys, and finally a few killed turkeys. What's most important, however, is what we can take away from all these hunts (failed hunts included) to make us more successful in the future.

To a turkey hunter, there's fewer things worse than spooking a turkey. It can make you lose sleep at night. It can make you question everything you thought you knew and lose confidence in the woods. On this week's episode, we dive into the sore subject of spooking long beards. We discuss common mistakes and scenarios, share old stories, and most importantly, we discuss ways to keep this from happening.
