In this week’s [UNCENSORED] podcast by GoWild, we start off very uncensored and share some of our silly nicknames … find out how Arica got herself some extra unwanted attention on a forum years ago. She went turkey hunting after spotting a few birds on her property. She slipped in and did some calling but the tom was henned up and wouldn’t break away … or so she thought. He came back on his own a little later on and she put the stalk on him but he got away from her again. She leaned on her calling and got him talking and then she set the call down. He gobbled a bunch but never came back in. She got one more chance and got close but may have spooked him.
Brayden and Phil have continued to get after it exploring a ton of ground but are having trouble getting a bird to commit. They’ve been finding birds but encountering some challenging scenarios. Dan Johnson is back on and gives some great advice for how/when you can get more aggressive when getting under roosted turkeys. We talk about some other late season tactics as the hunting gets tougher.
Jacob got out and got aggressive too but it backfired on him. He accidentally set up too close to roosted birds and had to make a move to spin around but got busted by two toms. He moved into another spot but this time ran into a deer and a turkey that scattered away hard. It was a tough way to end his season, but now he’s confident next year will be better because he knows where the birds are hanging out. We also tease out some ideas of how you might be able to work a bird that was scared away.
Arica found a deer fawn in her yard. This is pretty early so the team ponders the whole sequence of the rut and poses some thought provoking questions. How can trail cams help predict peak rut?
We close the show with some random silliness. What is Derby pie? We all share our favorite pie and ice cream flavors. We also banter about the relationship between pooping and coffee.
