You easily can take a turkey if you don't make any mistakes, but you have to know what the deadly sins of turkey hunting are to keep you from making those mistakes. If you understand how to hunt a turkey, you're far more likely to take a gobbler than if you just know how to call a turkey. Of course, calling is important, and if you want to learn to call a turkey, Preston Pittman will teach you how to call turkeys with box calls, friction calls, diaphragm calls, and other turkey sounds. You'll also learn why Preston Pittman once put turkey manure all over his body to kill a tough tom. When you have turkeys that strut and drum in the middle of a field, when you know there's no way to get close enough to get a shot, Pittman will show you some weird tactics that have worked for him to help you hunt tough ole toms. But the main thing you'll learn in this book is how to become the turkey. "I try to look like a turkey, walk like a turkey, talk like a turkey, and think like a turkey," Pittman emphasizes. "When you become the turkey, you increase your odds for taking a gobbler by at least 1000%." Few men have dedicated their lives, futures and fortunes to understanding a single animal of God's great creation. The wild turkey gobbler, wherever it is found, has been Preston Pittman's passion his entire life. Using what he's learned while hunting wild turkeys, he's also become a master woodsman who can take most game, regardless of where he hunts. To learn more secrets about how to be a turkey hunter from one of the world champions of the sport, this turkey-hunting book with Preston Pittman is a must.
What would have made How to Hunt Turkeys with World Champion Preston Pittman better?
The audio presentation was excellent! However, the many of the turkey hunting the author teaches are deadly dangerous! He talks about hunting with a hen decoy strapped to his head, crawling to sneak up on Toms, and walking with a turkey fan in front of him to get closer to Toms. EVERY one of these turkey hunting tatics should NEVER be taught unless a turkey hunters wants to get Shot and maybe killed by another hunter! Yes he does say these are unsafe, unless you know where you are hunting. However, even hunting private land could still get someone killed by doing any of these turkey hunting practices! You never know when someone may come along and accidentally mistake you for the real turkey and shoot you!
