Most turkey hunting injuries happen when one hunter stalks another.Don’t stalk turkeys! It doesn’t work and it’s dangerous.

To safely hunt a turkey:

  • Assume any noise is made by a human.
  • Never wear turkey colors—red, blue, black or white.
  • Call only with a large tree at your back.
  • Drape an orange vest around a tree near your calling location so that other hunters know you’re there.

If you see another hunter:

  • Don’t wave, whistle or make turkey or animal sounds to attract his or her attention.

Be sure of your target … and beyond!

Turkey Stalking Stinks!
