Safety Really Is First.
It only takes one small mistake to ruin the rest of your season. It's best to focus on what you’re doing and how you’re doing it:
Check out your state/province regulations:
Hunting can vary by region. Make sure to review your state/province hunting guides and website for updates.
- USA - Some guides available at eRegulation.com
- GA - Georgia Hunting Seasons & Regulations – 2020 | eRegulations
Find great hunting opportunities:
The U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service offers an interactive map to find areas where and when you can hunt for various species like turkey.
In Canada, wild turkey hunting is limited to these 4 provinces: Manitoba, Ontario, Québec, and British Columbia.
Practice your Turkey Calls
Turkey calls are important tools to keep them interested in your area or if you notice a call that may require you to take other actions. Check out the National Wild Turkey Federation’s website for Denny Gulvas’s "Wild Turkey Sounds".
Scout your area.
Timing is everything when it comes to making the correct calls and pulling the trigger. You can be more effective by remote live streaming with a Spartan GoLive to scout the area prior to arriving to the hunt.
