Turkey Hunting: Keys to Locating Midmorning Birds

When your morning setup on a roosted gobbler doesn't work out as planned, it's time to make a decision. You can sit patiently and call for a few hours with the hope that the bird will return, or you can make some strategic moves with the hope of striking a longbeard that is more motivated by your calling efforts. Now's not the time for aimless woods roaming. Make a midmorning hunt plan and stick to it, because the next gobble you hear may come from the bird that fills your tag.
