Turkeys have been a staple for big game hunters since before our nation’s ing.  Turkeys are in many regions throughout United States and n be a great source of food for a family in normal times or in emergency situations.  Knowing how to turkey hunt and praicing skill before you have to rely on hunting as a main source of food is a critil skill for a prepper in my opinion.  Turkey hunting is something that n be accomplished by hunter’s of average skill (such as myself) and with very little specialized equipment.  Below are a few things you will need before you get started turkey hunting.

– A Turkey ll.  re are many different types, but in my opinion easiest to learn how to use is a basic slate ll.  Click here to see an example of a slate ll.   A mouth ll is also good for when Turkey is in close.

Turkey’s have excellent color vision, so good mo is a must!  I prefer a 3D type of mo.  I recommend bela’s brand to see type I use click here.  3D mo makes a huge difference in amount of movement you n get away with in my opinion.  It is far superior to even most advanced 2D mo on market.

– A good shot or bow and some ammo.  In videos below I shot this Turkey with a Remington 870 Express Super Magnum Syntic.

Once you have had success turkey hunting you will need to know how to clean turkey in order to take advantage of all of meat.  Watch video below to see basics of how to field dress turkey.  One thing we could have done to make this process a little easier would have been to hang turkey by his feet and let all of fears fall to ground.  This would have made it a lot cleaner process.
