Turkey Hunting** New York State has opened a special spring youth turkey season that opens the weekend before our regular spring season. This is a great time to bring your kids to hear alot of gobbling and see some really good hunting before the regular season starts.
Spring - We scout our land well before season and are very familiar with roosting, feeding and travel locations of mature gobblers. Permanent blinds are scattered throughout our hunting grounds but we also have enough land to cut and run. On those rainy days or when the birds are hanging out in the fields, each guide has the newest portable blind to make your hunt successful and comfortable. You are more than welcome to go roosting with your guide the night before your hunt. However, putting a longbeard to bed makes for a restless night of sleep.
Fall - Again we scout our land thoroughly before opening day. At this time of year the birds are in bigger flocks and the action can be non-stop. We have hunted flocks of gobblers numbering over 20 and flocks of hens and young numbering over 40. We don't scatter fall birds unless it is absolutely necessary or if it is from someone taking a shot at one in the flock. We primarily hunt roost and feeding locations. If you have had a flock of 20 or more birds answer your calls and come in, all with in shooting range, then you understand why we don't scatter the flock. This is a great hunt for young hunters because birds are plentiful and are less pressured than they are in the spring. Also the demand for a fall hunt is less than in spring so chances are you will be the only one in camp.
