    I plan on turkey hunting this spring, first time I’ll be going. Hopefully I’ll be successful

  3. JonnyC Rollin on March 12, 2021 at 11:33 pm

    Thanks for this. I feel like new people getting into hunting (like me) gets the "oh, another new guy wanna be hunter" attitude from some hunters. And they act like they’re high and mighty. Not very welcoming until "you’re part of their crew" of knowledge. So thanks.

  4. JJAWESOMER 44 on March 12, 2021 at 11:35 pm

    Dam i didnt realize he was from NE until he said Nebraska. Am i really that retarded?

  5. Professional Physiotherapy and Sports Clinic on March 12, 2021 at 11:36 pm

    The one use of decoys ,you dont need a range finder . you know exactly how far those decoys you left them and the distance ! Hope that helps

  6. pat esposito on March 12, 2021 at 11:36 pm

    Loved the video. Just one thing I been wondering which is, should I hunt from my blind or does it not matter?

  7. Nikolai NM on March 12, 2021 at 11:37 pm

    is it possible to spot and stalk or is that harder or prohibited

  8. Juan Carlos Pena on March 12, 2021 at 11:38 pm

    I’m just starting out. Awesome tips!

  9. Big J's Outdoors & Airguns on March 12, 2021 at 11:39 pm

    Hey man! Greetings from Plattsmouth! I heard you say you are in eastern Nebraska. My 12 year old son & I will be chasing Turkey this spring and I am trying to be as prepared as possible. Thanks for the good info, I appreciate it!

  10. Matt Wilson on March 12, 2021 at 11:42 pm

    Is scent control a big deal?

  11. AJG on March 12, 2021 at 11:42 pm

    Hi me and my dad are hunting right now. We have been struggling. Thanks for the info

  12. Aliana Saiz on March 12, 2021 at 11:44 pm

    I know a little bit of turkey hunting because I went turkey hunting and I got a turkey

  13. Brad G on March 12, 2021 at 11:45 pm

    Great video

  14. Philip Vaughan on March 12, 2021 at 11:45 pm

    I’ve dropped a couple deer in my hunting life and decided this year I am going to give Turkey hunting a go. I am binge watching plenty of turkey videos hopefully I can get it done this year!

  15. Newwavepressure on March 12, 2021 at 11:46 pm

    Sorry but do i have to bleed it out lik hanging upside down like butchering a chicken?????

  16. Backyard Outdoors MB on March 12, 2021 at 11:47 pm

    Thanks for the video!

  17. Jess Scott on March 12, 2021 at 11:48 pm

    I don’t get it either Why do people shoot at 🦃 on a person’s back Dead

  18. Seekers Squad on March 12, 2021 at 11:48 pm

    I’m a very amateur hunter I’ve only done squirrel and in in 2 years I’ve gotten 4 lol I really want to do Turkey this fall season

  19. Eric Goyette on March 12, 2021 at 11:50 pm

    I totally agree with High Prairie Sportsmen comment. Good job with showing the basics as I am just starting with turkey hunting myself. Look forward to using said tips and bringing home my first turkey!!! Safe hunting 😉

  20. Chaz Seymour on March 12, 2021 at 11:50 pm

    Great info dude…thanks from NYC…

  21. Terry Mason on March 12, 2021 at 11:51 pm

    Going out for my first turkey hunt this weekend and I feel like this was a good help

  22. Bob Sickinger on March 12, 2021 at 11:51 pm

    Outstanding video for a newbie turkey hunter…thank you PS sounds like the regs in Nebraska are the same as the regs in Ontario Canada

  23. Mike Palucci on March 12, 2021 at 11:51 pm

    Great video!

  24. Aubrianna Russell on March 12, 2021 at 11:52 pm

    I’m going out hunting on my grandparents property. This is my first time hunting for anything. Thanks for the tips.

  25. Lauren Balestrieri on March 12, 2021 at 11:53 pm

    Thanks for the tips – definitely learned a lot and am excited to get out there this season!

  26. JJAWESOMER 44 on March 12, 2021 at 11:53 pm

    Im from eastern nebraska and May 1st 2020 i stalked 3 toms a quarter mile and ended the hunt with a headshot from 25 yards.
    The Turkeys i was hunting were really dumb cuz after i shot the tom they didnt leave right away even though i go 10 yds away Go Big Red!

  27. William Haddon on March 12, 2021 at 11:55 pm

    Great video man, thanks! Hunted turkeys when i was younger with my dad in Pennsylvania and just moved to southern Alabama and am getting back after them. Do turkeys act differently by location (region)? Having a hell of a time trying to locate roost sites or any predictable pattern to narrow down my locations to set up.

  28. jamesr792 on March 12, 2021 at 11:58 pm

    Just got back from Turkey hunting……needless to say, I didn’t get anything. I’m going to get myself some decoys and whatnot and take your advice


  29. Jbright114 bright on March 13, 2021 at 12:00 am

    64 yrs and going 1st time this spring. Thanks for the tips. I can’t wait to get to the woods.

  30. Dallas Nash on March 13, 2021 at 12:00 am

    Taking my son out for summer Turkey crossbow season for the first time… So excited to be with my son away from Fortnite.

  31. bernie Mahoney on March 13, 2021 at 12:02 am

    Great tips. Thanks so much !

  32. Justin Robichaud on March 13, 2021 at 12:02 am

    Thanks for making this video man, you’d hope a lot of this was common sense, but reviewing it is always good for new and for the experienced too. Im going back out with my bow tomorrow and hope to bring back some birds. Your explanation on decoy placement definitely helped me, and I had a really similar calling scenario last weekend too where I thought he gave up on me, I packed out and then blew my spot out when I saw him crossing in on my blind. Thanks again! Happy Hunting!

  33. Adam Hernandez on March 13, 2021 at 12:04 am

    Thanks for the advice man. Wish me luck

  34. prylosec or something on March 13, 2021 at 12:06 am

    I’ve deer hunted my whole life and only turkey hunted once but I’m gonna start this year and hopefully drop a Turkey and feed my family during this virus

  35. charlie porter on March 13, 2021 at 12:06 am

    Really liked your video, I’m getting ready for my first turkey hunt when the season starts next week in IN. Thanks for all the tips.

  36. jackson Bowers on March 13, 2021 at 12:06 am

    the part about letting them have it when there in the roost is bs you barley barley call very quit it is called tree talk

  37. Nicholas Bracalente on March 13, 2021 at 12:10 am

    Great video gobble gobble

  38. Matthew Peckham on March 13, 2021 at 12:10 am

    I’m hunting (anything) for the first time this year, basically because I have a 12 gauge (and spring shotgun turkey season is the closest shotgun season after I decided to pick up the hobby) and it gives me enough time to get permits,apply, research etc, turkey it is! . Considering I live in Lincoln this is the perfect video for me! Thank you !

  39. Yup on March 13, 2021 at 12:11 am

    Real good basics for the new turkey hunter! I’m experienced and still enjoy reviewing the simple nuts and bolts. I’d add a coupla points. Head color is also a good indicator for sexing a spring bird. A hen’s head is typically dull gray, while a fired up male is good ol red, white, and blue! For aiming, I center my bead just above where the neck meets the body. I’ve seen some hunting partners who aimed at the noggin, got excited, and ended up shooting high and missed. If you aim at lower neck the pattern should cover for a nice clean kill. Great tips! Great overview!

  40. Snappy Snapfire on March 13, 2021 at 12:15 am

    The box call you shouldnt lift it off the box it is silent on the push back

  41. William Nash on March 13, 2021 at 12:16 am

    I’ve hunted my whole life but never turkey hunted. When do you recommend putting out the decoys. Night before hunt?, as soon as you get to your hunting location. Thanks

  42. Jakob Roze on March 13, 2021 at 12:18 am

    Great video bud, appreciate all the tips!

  43. Sni Guy on March 13, 2021 at 12:19 am

    Great video man

  44. Jessica Toy on March 13, 2021 at 12:19 am

    University of Nebraska shirt! I am a UNO Maverick!

  45. WDTA UT on March 13, 2021 at 12:21 am

    Always aim for the head. Shooting a turkey in the body is a good way to wound him. He will probably die — after he runs off and you can’t find him. Coyote bait. Pattern your gun. Know your effective range and stick to it. Shoot ’em in the head.

  49. MTM on March 13, 2021 at 12:27 am

    Just about to start hunting in the fall and doing some research now. Your video was really helpful.
