Turkey fanning (or turkey reaping as some call it) has become the hottest and most controversial tactic over the last few spring seasons. In the era of action cams and YouTube, turkey fanning has gained a fast following because it can be an exciting way to hunt, bringing charging longbeards to within just a few feet of the gun. The tactic is controversial because crawling behind a full fan decoy can be dangerous, if it's not done under the proper conditions and in the right terrain. Never try to fan in a gobbler on public land or in a densely wooded area. Also, in some states it is illegal to stalk a turkey, so check the regs. Besides the safety aspect, some old school guys will argue that no self-respecting turkey hunter would belly crawl after a longbeard like a damn snake. Real turkey hunters call in their birds.
