Hunting strategies are different, calling is not as critical to success, and birds are often in big flocks, concentrating on local food sources – everything about fall wild turkey hunting makes it more challenging than the spring season.
The key to success in the spring is getting close to gobbling toms and seducing them into gun range with subtle hen calls such as clucks, purrs and yelps. Communication between the sexes is a major part of the mating ritual.
