Where to hold your gun. I call on old friend of the show, Ed Bangs to find out how he was doing. He’s a seasoned hunter except when it comes to turkeys. Listen for a lesson. “I had never really called them that much and the biggest thing that I made was that I didn’t get myself properly set up with my gun up ready to shoot because I had my gun in my lap. This one time I am calling and I see this turkey finally coming in and he is starting to run because he can see my decoys. I have a male and female decoy, the male is one of those Montana targets, it is like a photograph painted on material that has a spring inside of it that pops up. So I see this turkey coming and see the movement out of the side of my eye and I am waiting there motionless and there is a group of turkeys standing 5 yards from me looking at the decoys. They didn’t see me they were just standing right beside me. They were walking right in front of me getting close to the decoys and then they see me because I am so close and they start clucking in the way they do when they are alarmed. Then they started walking away but if you go to move, they are running and I don’t want to take a running shot at anything. So I had a lot of fun. I didn’t get a turkey but it was a blast. Well at least you learned not to put your gun in your lap. That’s for sure.
