Turkey call

I was on my way to a fishing hole the other day when two turkeys crossed the road in front of me.I pulled up and stopped my vehicle and gave out a few verbal turkey calls and to my surprise,the old birds called back at me.So I decided to write a little article on Turkey Dinner,as I have purchased a tag but didn't get that Turkey I put in for.
I have found that most Turkeys stay close to a ranch as that is where most of the feed sources are.If you want to hunt them you will have to get permission from the land owner first,then follow his rules of pursuit.
There are a lot of people who start feeding the birds and when they get accustomed to being fed,they will not venture into the woods so the hunter can bag one.
