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

                

So-called strut zones are areas where gobblers go to strut and attract hens. 

They usually are flat, open areas where visibility is good and where there is a food source.  They are not necessarily small, confined spaces as the name implies, but may be as large as an open ridgetop, a secluded field corner, a large harvested field, or a flat creek bottom.

Many authors and hunters feel that these "hot spots" are places a gobbler picks out to do his strutting to attract hens.  While this may appear to be true, strut zones are actually places that hens choose as good food sources. 

Hens routinely go there and gobblers know that.  This is why gobblers will go there, and gobble and gobble to attract hens...or they will go there and strut, waiting for a hen to appear. 

 

Hunters find it hard to understand why gobblers that are apparently alone, come off roost and leave them rather than come to their calls.  

In some cases, hens come to them and lead them away.  Often, lone toms go to strut zones where hens frequently visit them for breeding. 

They hear and may gobble to your calls, but they expect you to come to them at the usual rendezvous.

 

A gobbler may have several favorite strut zones and use none of them frequently enough for you to determine a pattern.  Other toms use a single spot habitually.

If you work the same gobbler several days in a row and you hear prolonged periods of gobbling from a single spot, he is probably waiting for you in one of his favorite strutting areas. 

You may never be able to coax him away from a spot where he is used to receiving hens no matter how sweet your calls.

 

Scouting for strut zones before and during the spring hunting season is a SECRET tactic that many hunters never bother to do. 

By spending several mornings and late afternoons in the area you intend to hunt, you will locate toms by listening to them gobble, seeing them, or both

This information should be noted on topographic maps of the area.   These maps, with your year-to-year notations, is a road map of turkey activity.   In future years, just refer to the map to begin your hunt. 

Gobblers are very predictable when it comes to strut zones.  If habitat is not changed, strut zones remain consistent for years.
