    I searched through posts but did not find much on Turkey calls. We had 12 big Tom turkeys walk through and I would like to call them in, but see many variations on turkey calls for sale. Any suggestions?

    Going Turkey hunting in a few weeks on my brother's property. I'll probably load up with CCI Velocitors. I'm assuming for turkey hunting, head shots are preferred? The rifle I'll be bringing is a Sig 522. Anything wrong with my rifle choice or am I good to go? :cool:

    I want to first say I did not cheat in anyway in weighing this turkey in the pictures. And I knew no one would beleive me without pictures of it. This is his actual weight according to my scales, and I know for a fact they are accurate. He is weighing in at about 53 pounds. He is so fat he can...

    I'm looking to start hunting in West TN this season. I think I can get on to a hunting lease with stands already setup. It is 1st come 1st serve but only about 15 members allowed from what I understand. The cost is $600/year for 2000 acres. Is this reasonable? Another lease I haven't looked...

    I just traded some old baseball cards for a Hatsan Escort pump action 12 gauge, don't worry the baseball cards were pretty worthless, but I have never heard of the name brand. The shotgun itself is in good condition, barrel looks brand new, action pretty smooth, but it occasionally sticks a...

    Are there any turkey hunters in our community? And if so what techniques do you use to clean your turkeys do you skin or pluck your birds? Also are there any good videos on field dressing a turkey out there? Nothing like a deep fried turkey.
