Avian-X

The next generation of Avian-X LCD decoys are lighter, easier to pack and less aggressive to real hens. Add the increased texture and detailed feather lines and they look even more realistic. No-flake paint on the quiet, collapsible Dura-Rubber bodies won’t wear off and the folding motion stake helps create movement with the slightest breeze. Years of studying body postures, moods and behaviors of wild turkeys went into the design of these relaxed, welcoming breeder hen decoys.

This long-range turkey call forces even the most tight-lipped birds to expose their position. The flexible body also allows the user to manipulate the tone and pitch to sound like multiple crows, making it an ideal locator call for crows also.

Small Tract Toms — Turkey-hunting tactics for small properties

My return to turkey hunting after a 15-year hiatus was truly haphazard.

I had recently leased a 150-acre tract of land near Folsom for deer hunting and was scouting for deer sign in late winter trying to learn the lay of the land. What I discovered was startling: The deer lease was full of turkey sign, and I spotted several turkeys during my scouting trips.
