We hunt both. Definitely don't hunt turkeys in the fall.:thumbdown: I disagree with the fall season. Don't see the accomplishment in shooting one with a rifle. Spring season only :thumbsup:
Yea I was going to bow hunt for them, just thought it would be nice to have a fresh one for thanksgiving.

Fall Turkey

Never understood fall turkey hunting. Can't hunt them from a tree stand in AL (not that we have a lot of counties with a fall season) so can't shoot them while bow hunting deer from a stand. I have seen plenty this fall bow hunting deer, must have had a good hatch this year. Going to be a great spring! :thumbup:

PS Would love to swap a 2 day spring turkey hunt next spring for a Bluewater fishing trip next summer

Honestly, it's not much of a challenge to kill anything out of a treestand.

If I'm out deer hunting and get a shot at a turkey I'm taking it. I look at a fall turkey as a bonus to deer hunting and just some more good eats for the table.
Of course, provided I didn't do what I did this year and not purchase my turkey permit.

Honestly I can't say I have ever hunted out of a tree stand. All I have ever done was stalking or sitting against a tree waiting. But that was also up north, and everything seems to act a little different (scared) down here.

Piss on a deer... Spring Turkey hunting is where it's at... :thumbsup:
Deer are no where near as smart as a turkey thus making the hunt more difficult, and rewarding.

A turkey in the winter is like a girlfriend who wants to get married, you can get away with things. A turkey in the spring is like a long time wife, she knows all your tricks.
