History of Fall Turkey Hunting

Fall was the preferred time to hunt wild turkeys by most of the famous old time turkey hunters and is still favored by many traditionalists. These turkey hunting experts liked it best because it was a lot more difficult and therefore more rewarding to call in an old gobbler in the fall than the spring.

Gobblers in the late summer, fall and winter become very solitary animals with very little interest in females. They do, however, gobble in the fall and there have been a few mornings in October and Novemeber that I could have sworn it was spring with all the gobbling around. On rare occasions, gobblers will even come in strutting and gobbling just like spring. More likely though you won't even notice a fall gobbler coming in to your calls. He will just appear silently, looking for companionship with another longbeard but not really caring whether he finds it or not. This is a real fall gobbler..

The fall season has regained its popularity recently with the ever-increasing numbers of turkeys. Over 40 states now host fall turkey seasons and more and more hunters are discovering the excitement of hunting in the fall.
