098 - 3 More Turkey Hunting Myths Busted

In this episode, I bust 3 more turkey hunting myths. 

1. Turkeys won't go downhill.

2. A spooked turkey equals a ruined hunt.

3. Calling is everything.

Newbie turkey hunters are often turned away from turkey hunting because they feel like there is just too much to the sport to learn and master. They hear us experienced turkey hunters say turkeys won't do this and turkeys don't do that.

The truth of the matter is that turkeys are wild animals and they will do whatever they feel like doing at the time. Let's face it, that is why we turkey hunt to start with.

096 - The Science Behind Setting Turkey Hunting Seasons and Bag Limits

In this episode, Mike Schiavone with the New York DEC discusses the science behind setting turkey hunting seasons and bag limits.

With turkey populations on the decline in many parts of the country, our state wildlife biologists and game and fish department officials have a difficult task of setting the length of our turkey hunting seasons and setting our bag limits as well.  The difficulty comes in when trying to manage the population of the animals and keeping hunters happy as well. 

Mike Schiavone is one of the people tasked with that difficult assignment in the state of New York, and he shares the factors that go into setting turkey hunting season length and bag limits.

Mike also shares the reasons he thinks turkey populations are on the decline in many parts of the state of NY, and he leaves us with some opportunities that we hunters can take advantage of to help our game and fish departments better do their jobs.

Listen in and enjoy episode 096 - The Science Behind Setting Turkey Hunting Seasons and Bag Limits.


095 - The Story of and Questions from a Newbie Turkey Hunter

In this week's episode, I speak with Jenna Barron to hear and answer the story of and questions from a newbie turkey hunter.

Jenna has never hunted before, and she has a burning desire to get into the woods to turkey hunt this fall.  I asked Jenna to come on to the show to share her story as to why she wants to start hunting at this point in her life, and to see if I can help to get her a little higher up that learning curve that all of us turkey hunters have experienced in our turkey hunting careers.

094 - Planning the 2017 Spring Turkey Hunting Trip - Decisions Made

After doing a good bit of research and talking to the boys, we have made some decisions about our 2017 spring turkey hunt. 

Listen in to this week's episode to learn how we weeded out at least 1 (and possibly 2) state from our very aggressive plan of attacking 4 states in the spring of 2017. 

I also discuss the results of the conversations that I had with a couple of the game biologists in 2 of those states as well.

093 - Planning the 2017 Spring Turkey Hunting Trip

In this week's episode, I let you in on the beginning stages of my planning the 2017 spring turkey hunting trip out of state.

This year, my buddies and I plan on hunting in Colorado, New Mexico, Utah, and Arizona. 4 of us killing a bird in each state will take a great deal of luck and skill as well as a great deal of careful planning before we ever leave home.

Over the next couple of episodes, I'm going to take you through the process of planning next year's hunt with me.  From talking to wildlife biologists, park rangers, and NWTF biologists to choosing dates to ironing out the logistics of the hunt, you will get to hear exactly what my buddies and I go through in planning one of the incredible hunts that we do each year.

The World Deer and Turkey Expo Interviews

This week I have a couple of new and exciting products that I want to introduce to you in the World Deer and Turkey Expo interviews that I conducted this past weekend. 

In this episode, you will hear of a great new product that I think all of us turkey hunters will want to check out. Phil Bullock with Bunkerhead joins me to discuss the Bunkerhead facemask system. The Bunkerhead system effectively keeps your facemask off of your face by clipping onto the bill of your ball cap.  This system is great for those turkey hunters who do not like the feel of a facemask on their noses and faces, but it is also good for those hunters who wear eyeglasses.

I also interview Tom Hurlburt with Knockdown Outdoors about their new smartphone application that acts as a digital signout board for your hunting property. This awesome new app has a text feature built into it that will enable you to text with your hunting buddies through the app as well as weather and wind direction.  I highly recommend you download the Knockdown Outdoors app from iTunes and the Google store and test drive this new application that can help to keep you safe while in the woods as well.

Lastly, I put my phone down for 30 seconds while at the show, and Son of the South, Josh Carney, commandeers it.  Join Josh as he takes you on an audio tour of The World Deer and Turkey Expo.  Also, hear Josh duplicate a seldom heard, rarely seen animal call upon my request.  This is a world premiere of a call that Josh has never publicly made before, and you are going to hear it first here on The Turkey Hunter.  This one will blow your mind and your speakers, so you may want to turn the volume down a bit towards the end of the interview.
