Turkey in snow shoes?
« on: April 14, 2010, 01:07:32 PM »
This is what I have been putting up with so far this season.


In town there is 8" just out of town at 5800 feet in the mountains there is as much as 3 feet. How the heck do I hunt turkey like that ?? I'm open to any real information, and yes I have herd all the "Turkey" in the snow jokes from the wife.

I think with all that snow I would just hunt that special breed that you can find at the super market, I think they call it butter ball!!!! ;D ;D ;D

Good luck D, I have no idea what to tell you to do in that stuff. I hunted one youth day here with about 4" on the ground. They did gobble on the roost and flew down into a depp holler out of the wind and just hung out. They did not answer calls or move much.

D45, if I was in your snowshoes, I would seriously consider moving to Arizona.  :roll: ;D

Heck, it's probably warmer in Alaska than where you live.  ;D

Why don't ya just collect one of those frozen turkeys out of a snowdrift? You would just have to thaw it out after getting home.

It's so cold where you live, you can't carry on a conversation because the words freeze and you can't hear the words until you take them inside and thaw them out.

Try to figure out where they're traveling and roosting.  After that, find you a good place to sit down and wait them out.  You should be able to catch them coming or going to/from the roost.  O0

When I've had turkeys that didn't want to play nice, I started hunting them like deer.  Just sit and ambush them. O0  A time or two, I've not even had to call.  :wink:

In all seriousness, the Marlin is a great rifle, too. I own a Model 60, one of the best rifles ever made.
Brownings are nice, but in terms of quality AND accuarcy AND ruggedness, it's hard to beat the Marlin.

Global Warming at its meanest. Lucky for me to live in the Lone Star State I guess.  ;D
