Turkey calling
  • Protect your back by sitting against a large tree or other natural barrier that will shield you from a hunter approaching from the rear.
  • Never carry harvested turkeys in the open. Cover them with a hunter orange vest, or put them in a game bag.
  • Shout “STOP” at approaching hunters. Don’t move, wave, whistle, or make turkey calls to get their attention.
  • Positively identify your target. Be absolutely certain it’s a legal turkey before pulling the trigger.
