Turkey Hunting Gear with Jeff Budz

From the Basics to a Pack Mule

Must watch courses for beginner turkey hunters.

Have you ever been on a business trip and forgotten your dress socks or shoes?  Ever been on a summer trip to the beach or lake and forgotten your bathing suit or sunscreen? I once went on a turkey hunt with a buddy who forgot his shotgun. We killed a turkey that day, and most likely could have doubled if we had two guns instead of one.

Every successful turkey hunt starts with a solid foundation, and that foundation is the gear that we have with us when we go into the woods. Some of that gear is an absolute necessity, like a gun, bow, shells, and arrows. Some of that gear is a luxury, like a cushion to keep your rear end dry and comfortable during those long sits.

I truly believe that if we are going to be consistently successful and enjoy our time in the turkey woods, then we need to have quite a few items with us when we are hunting.

Our turkey hunting gear courses show you what we carry in our vests throughout the turkey season. These courses may just save you from a very uncomfortable weekend of hunting turkeys or from missing an opportunity to fill a tag because of forgetfulness.

Guns with Jeff Budz

What is a Turkey Hunting Gun?

Must watch courses for beginner and intermediate turkey hunters.  Course is 22 minutes and 8 seconds in length.

The expression of bringing a knife to a gunfight is what I think about when I hear some turkey hunters talking about their guns and ammo.

While it is true that you can grab the same shotgun that you use to kill doves, squirrels, and rabbits, grab a couple of turkey shotgun shells, and take that to the woods to kill a turkey, that is not the best course of action to take.

As ethical sportsmen and women, we owe it to the game we hunt to make the most humane harvest of that animal we can. Knowing our shotguns in and out and what modifications we can make to those guns to make them more suited to hunting wild turkeys is extremely important.

This group of courses does just that. We learn about what makes a turkey hunting shotgun a turkey hunting shotgun and what we should expect of those guns while we are hunting.

While many people overlook this topic as being worthy of their time and money, watching these videos will actually save you time and money. Missing or wounding a wild turkey because of using a gun that is not tricked out to shoot a turkey shotgun shell as well as it could is irresponsible and expensive. We turkey hunters should expect the most from our gear that we use, but we need to be educated about the gear we use so that we use it properly. These courses provide the education we need to know what to expect from a turkey hunting shotgun.

At the Range with Andy Gagliano

At_the_Range
Sighting In and Patterning

Must watch courses for beginner and intermediate turkey hunters.

Part of knowing whether our equipment is capable of doing the job we need it to is testing it before we take it to the woods hunting. Our turkey hunting shotguns are no different. As ethical sportsmen and women, we owe it to the animal we are hunting (and to ourselves) to know how our equipment performs.

The only way to know this information is to test it, specifically our guns, at the range.

We need to know exactly how our gun performs with our specific choke and our specific ammo at 10, 20, 30, 40, 50, and 60 yards – Yes! Some of today’s ammo/choke/gun combinations can make consistent, effective, and humane kill shots at 60 yards and farther.

But the bottom line is that we need to know how our equipment performs so we can make a reasonable determination as to whether or not a turkey is standing within the effective range of our equipment so we can make that humane shot.

These courses show you how different hunters pattern their ammo, guns, and chokes at the range and how the determine what an effective range is for their turkey guns.

Knowing Where to Sit Down to Call

Must watch courses for beginner and intermediate turkey hunters.

I’ll just go out on a limb and say that 80% – 90% of whether or not a turkey hunt will be successful or not is determined by where and how we setup to call that longbeard to our location. Setup in the wrong place, and you’ll get to go back to camp telling a story about how you almost killed one. Setup in the right place, and you’ll go back to camp telling a success story. Wild turkey tastes better than wild turkey tag soup, and these courses will help to put wild turkey meat in your freezer.

In these courses, we discuss picking the best tree to sit against, determining how far away to get from a turkey, how to brush ourselves in, using pop-up blinds, how to comfortably position your gun, and much, much more.

So many turkey hunters think that if they could just call better then they could kill more turkeys. The truth is that is not necessarily the case. If they understood what they were saying when they were calling and knew when to say those things then that they could kill more turkeys.

These courses are not a lesson in how to call because there are some great videos on YouTube that can help to teach you that, but these courses are more of a what these calls mean and when we should use them.

Decoying with Jeff Budz

Decoy Strategies from Lone Feeding Hen to Turkey Reaping

Must watch courses for beginner and intermediate turkey hunters. Course is 44 minutes and 53 seconds in length.

During my early turkey hunting years, I thought I could kill more turkeys if only I could use decoys, but I couldn’t use decoys to turkey hunt because using decoys in my home state was illegal. After decoys were legalized, I tried using them. I ended up scaring more turkeys while using decoys than I killed because I didn’t know how to use decoys properly.

Now, after learning some tips and tactics for decoying, I’m comfortable using decoys in my hunting setups… at the right time.

These decoying strategies are discussed in these decoy courses. We talk about lone hen decoys, breeder hens vs alert hens, jake decoys, using decoy flocks, strutter decoys, fanning wild turkeys, and reaping wild turkeys.

How Does Weather Affect Where Turkeys Are and What They Do?

Must watch courses for beginner turkey hunters. Course is 18 minutes and 48 seconds in length.

There are some parts of the country that only have a one week long turkey season. What if the weather is less than ideal during that one week that your turkey hunting season is open? Should you just stay home or should you brave the snow, the rain, or the heat and get outside and hunt turkeys?

The number 1 rule when it comes to killing turkeys is that you can’t kill them sitting in your living room. We have to get outside in the woods to have success turkey hunting – no matter the weather.

In fact, there are some instances where the weather can actually help our chances of having success.

Wild turkeys tend to react certain ways to certain weather conditions. Knowing a turkey’s reactions to weather conditions can be a boon to our turkey hunting success.

These weather and wild turkeys courses are extremely helpful in teaching us where we can find turkeys during many of the varied springtime weather events that we tend to encounter.

Displaying Fans, Beards, and Spurs

Preparing Your Own Trophy Display

Must watch courses for beginner and intermediate turkey hunters.

We don’t have to have every single turkey we kill mounted by a taxidermist. In fact, most of us can’t afford to do that, and even if we could we wouldn’t have the room to display all of those trophies. Some hunters choose to never have a wild turkey taxidermied.  So, what other options do we have for displaying our turkey trophies and memories?

This course discusses some of those options for us. We talk about popular ways of displaying beards, fans, and spurs, and we talk about how to prepare them for display. There is a right way and a wrong way to preserve the parts of our trophies so that they will last for years.

Our instructors will teach you those right ways of preparing the beards, spurs, and fans of our turkeys.

Proper Storing of Calls for Years of Use

Must watch courses for beginner, intermediate, and expert turkey hunters.

We spend a lot of money on turkey calls. We may not realize it because we spend $8 on a diaphragm call here, $40 on a pot and peg call there, $80 for a box call at the next spot, and on and on. I am sure I would be startled to learn how much money I have spent on turkey calls over the years of my hunting career.

The good news is that we don’t have to spend that money on new calls each and every year that we turkey hunt. Except for diaphragm calls, most well made turkey calls can last for 10 or 20 years with the proper maintenance in the field when hunting but particularly after season ends before we put the call up for the year.

Humidity, dust, heat, water, kids, and pets are all possible turkey call enemies. In this course, our instructors will teach you everything you need to know about caring for your calls for the offseason.

To be the best turkey hunters we can be we need to continue to increase our knowledge of all things wild turkeys, but we also need to take care of ourselves.

From strength training to cardio to stretching our muscles, there are numerous exercises that we can do to improve our ability to beat a bird to where he wants to go, to improve our ability to hold and aim our guns, and to help our hearts and legs push us over that next hill to a gobbling turkey.

Our instructors will show you some simple exercises for you to do at home in as little as 30 minutes each day 3 to 4 days per week that will help you become a better turkey hunter and a healthier person.
