Bringing home that gobbler safely

-A A +A
By Guest Editorial

The Commonwealth is home to a strong population of wild turkeys and many enthusiastic turkey hunters. Spring Gobbler Season runs through May 14 this year in Virginia.
The sharp eyesight and acute hearing of wild turkeys make them challenging game for hunters to pursue. Taking one of these wily birds requires patience, accurate shooting and lots of turkey know-how. Part of the lure of turkey hunting is the strategy hunters must use to outwit them. Before heading into the woods turkey hunters need to take extra preparation time to improve their chances of taking a gobbler.
