Lessons learned in turkey hunting
By John McAdams
Big game hunter John McAdams writes: "As promised in my previous article about my first turkey hunt, I'm discussing some of the lessons I learned while turkey hunting. I had a great time, and I got a nice turkey to show for it. However, the hunt was not perfect and there are always things that I can improve for the next trip. It always pays to sit down after each hunt and determine what you did well, and what you can do better for the future. With any luck, I'll get another chance to put some of these turkey hunting lessons learned to use next year."

Outdoor Life
