Fall season
« on: August 07, 2017, 07:06:49 PM »
Hi all. My teenage son has yet to harvest his first turkey and still has a tag. I am planning to take him to Eastern WA in late fall (Nov) since you can harvest either sex which will, hopefully, mean more opportunities to harvest a bird. I'm wondering if anyone has had success in the fall season, especially that late, and if you have any tips. My son and I are beginners. (This is our first year turkey hunting.)

I used to hunt the fall hunt. Its a blast, hit the counties with the largest populations. There will be more then enough birds to harvest. The birds will be in their winter groups by then. So instead of a few birds at a time, there may be hundreds at a time. What is really fun about this is, you can afford to experiment. I like running through a flock and scattering them. Then use what is called the Kee kee run. It is the sound a hen makes to bring all her poults back. You will hear it within in 10 minutes of scattering a flock. Just set up where you scared them and they will come...Also when you run through a flock in the fall, its not unheard of to be able to grab a couple birds on the way by. A lot of the younger birds hit the deck when they hear there moms sound off. And as you run by you can grab them if you are fast. Have fun :)

Lots of birds this year. Go in Sept. when you can shoot 2 hens.. They usually work their way to water first thing out of the roost. Set -up and ambush. Just find the roost and the water source. Good luck
