In this episode of the How to Hunt Deer Podcast, Josh talks with Zach Ferenbaugh of The Hunting Public about how spring turkey hunting can make you a better deer hunter. Zach and the rest of the THP crew spend each spring on the THP Turkey Tour, traveling state to state hunting turkeys in lots different landscapes. Much of what they learn each spring while chasing longbeards serves them well each fall, when it’s time to chase whitetails again.
Spring turkey hunting can benefit the avid whitetail hunter in many ways. Everyone knows that spring, especially early spring, can be a great time to scout for last season’s deer sign. But the payoff doesn’t stop there. Turkeys have a lot to teach us about calling animals, fooling an animals senses, the right time to make moves, and how to get off an ethical shot in the moment of truth. Tune in to up your fall deer hunting game by chasing toms this spring.
