Afternoon Hunting

Copyright © 1998 - 2002  Roger W. Raisch * Nadine Adele, all rights reserved
       
 
         

Afternoon hunting gives you a chance to try for gobblers that were abandoned by hens at midday and are looking for company. But, before you do this, make certain afternoon hunting is legal in your state.  If it's not, you can still scout in the afternoon to locate turkeys for the next morning and to learn about their habits and behavior.  Regardless, don't do this until after your nap!

 

Afternoon is normally a time for feeding and rest.   There will be much less gobbling, but a tom that can be convinced to gobble will be very likely to come to your call, especially if it's mid afternoon or after.

 

During the afternoon feeding period, you are likely to see turkeys around timber edges, in pastures or in other open feeding areas that are relatively close to good roosting areas.  These locations may very well be the same Strut Zones that you identified for morning hunting.

 

Stalk into your calling location quietly and slowly because turkeys may be close by.  You may want to start your calling with a Cackle to imitate a hen as she leaves her nest or flies across an obstacle.  A gobbler knows what that means...(a hen is on the move) and may answer with a gobble.  Unless a gobbler is actively gobbling in response to your calling, you should call sparingly. 

 

The afternoon gobbler will normally come to you silently.  For this reason you may want to call only every 10 to 15 minutes and remain very alert for a bird to appear out of nowhere. 


Between calls you can
Cluck a time or two to see if a gobbler will respond with a Cluck, Gobble or Drumming sound.  Use the same calls you tried in the morning, namely Clucks and Purrs, snappy Yelps, an occasional Mating Cackle and Cutts. 

Mix in plenty of low volume Feeding Calls (Clucks, Purrs, Soft Yelps).  If you are lucky and a bird begins to gobble regularly, work him just like you would in the morning but don't expect him to come in very fast.

 

An afternoon hunt is very much a wait and see type of hunt.  If you are near a good roosting site you may unknowingly call a gobbler close to your set up and he may roost near the "hen".   If your afternoon hunt is unsuccessful, you will already be properly positioned to try to make a roosted gobbler sound off at sundown.

 

Another afternoon tactic is to walk through the woods stopping occasionally to call in the hopes of getting a gobbler to respond.   This can work well especially if you know where gobblers are likely to be.  If nothing else happens you will have had a recent scouting trip in that area and will have learned a bit more about turkeys.
