Average day of Eastern Turkey Hunting in East TN
Arrive to lodging the day before to meet up with your guide to attempt to roost a bird, finish up ad go find somewhere to eat. Start out early the next morning for some Eastern Turkey Hunting in East TN. We use either store bought, or man made blinds or the run and gun style It all depends on the guide, hunter, and the area you will be hunting. In the mornigs the birds respond well to decoys and a little calling. Most Easterns are killed in the mornings.
After the morning hunt we will go rest and re group and meet back to return to the woods mid day sit. In the midday and afternoon hunts, we set up on travel areas and where the birds roost.
Our guides are great turkey callers and know the area very well. We have local taxidermist that does well, so you can leave your turkey here and will ship it to you after it is mounted. We also have guns (set up for turkey hunting) for you to use if you do not want to worry about bringing one with you.
Our goal is to make sure that you kill your first Eastern Turkey in East Tennessee!!
