Turkey Hunting Tips: Preparing for the Spring Hunt

There is no fool-proof way to kill a turkey. Sometimes you’ll have one come right in on your very first sit, and then the next season you just can’t seem to get them to commit. Here's some ways for greater success in the field:
  • Sight-in your gun and practice to increase your confidence.
  • Put yourself in a area where there are good numbers of birds, giving you lots of opportunity.
  • Conceal yourself the best you can, and limit movement to avoid spooking birds.
  • Practice your calling, but don’t over-call while hunting.

You're looking at two types of reels here, the one on the left is called a BAIT CASTER, and the one on the right is called a SPINNING REAL.

But what makes them different? Scroll down and learn about using a SPINNING REEL.
