PATTERN YOUR GUN
If possible, try different choke and shell combinations. At the very least, make sure you know exactly which shell performs best with the choke tube you will be using for your hunt.
Try shooting at various distances. Set up a target at 10, 20, 30 and even 40 yards. How tight is your pattern?
It is your responsibility to know how your shotgun is shooting BEFORE your hunt with us.
WHAT TO BRING
Short answer? Gun, shells, licenses/tag/seal, and camo clothes. Everything else simply adds to your comfort and experience. So, here’s a list of things that you can add to your vest or fanny pack that are not essential but you might be happy you brought along.
- Bug Spray – Early spring hunts are guaranteed to involve more flying critters then turkeys.
- Face Mask – Keeps the bugs out and your shinny face hidden.
- TP – You never know when nature will call. Keep a few squares handy.
- Camera (or use your cell) – A picture in the field is always the best!
- Turkey Calls – If you have been practicing at home and would like some pointers, bring them along!
- Waterproof Boots – Spring brings rain, and lots of it. Soggy feet are never enjoyable.
- Layer up! – Spring weather is unpredictable. Warm layers, wind layers, and waterproof layers can save the day.
- Snacks & Bottled Water- Turkey hunting can work up a thirst and an appetite!
