Turkeys have a way of utilizing their surroundings that makes getting one into gun range a pretty tough row to hoe.

In the timber, they seem to always manage to put a ditch between themselves and the hunter. Or maybe just a slight rise exists there that the hunter doesn’t know about until the gobbler steps onto it, locks it down and struts and gobbles for what seems like an eternity as he surveys his surroundings.

In the fields, it can be an even tougher engagement as turkeys roam in and out of them and can easily spend hours out of reach as the hunter begs from a distant tree line. Personally, I think field birds just might be the toughest to kill.
