When I first started hunting turkeys many years ago I could not have known less , it would have been impossible. My knowledge extended as far as knowing when the season started/ended and what time of day I could hunt. So I began and hunted as hard as I could and learned a lot along the way. As always, I learned a lot of what people told me was nonsense. One example is about hunting turkeys in the rain. It didn’t take long before I figured out hunting in the rain was maybe the best time to hunt birds. I’ll explain.
Have you heard this one? Many of you have and it makes you wonder where exactly this came from and what it’s based on. Having hunted several states during the last 40 years and doing a little research on the people making this claim I’m confident they could not be less educated/experienced. I’ll prove it here.
I doubt you’re reading/hearing anyone say you shouldn’t be passing up bucks these days, it’s time someone did. Having fallen into the trap of passing up countless bucks over the years and seeing exactly what it’s gotten me I had enough of it and I’ll tell you why. Too many these days are lead to believe they will see nothing but 10 pointers every year if they pass up bucks now, it’s a lie. If you’ve been doing it then you know what I mean, if you haven’t then keep reading and you’ll see why it isn’t what you’ve been lead to believe.
It isn’t very often a topic requires little thought and no research, this is one of them. Having planted for deer many times over the years I find there is one plant I always go back to no matter what. We all get distracted by the “latest and greatest” from time to time but usually end up right back where we started. I’m done being distracted and will always have the absolute easiest plant somewhere on my property and will end up spending more time around it than any others. I’ll tell ya why ….
