1 Get in Shape
Jeff Budz is a turkey-hunting fanatic who shares my passion for hunting public land. In fact, Budz has taken all four subspecies of turkeys on public land and currently has 35 grand slams under his belt. Now he helps others do the same through his Web site, tagitworldwide.com. Budget-conscious Budz forgoes guides and plans his hunts himself. He keeps costs to a minimum by often sleeping in his vehicle, eating food packed from home and targeting land that is open to everyone. But above all, he has found that getting and staying in top shape is his best advantage. When hitting an area where other hunters are present, it's crucial to be the first one to set up on a gobbling bird.
