It can be one of the most critical decisions a turkey hunter makes; where to set up when he hears that longbeard gobble. And, typically, he must make it fast. But, unless the bird is right on top of you, take a moment and choose your spot wisely. Dropping down in the wrong spot can put you in a slight depression or behind brush that may obstruct your view—and shot. Or it can leave you unnecessarily exposed or sitting facing the wrong way from where the bird wants to approach. Here’s how to choose a spot that will provide for the perfect ambush.
Wild Turkey is the first wild game I ever hunted. My journey to becoming a hunter started 12 years ago when I was invited out by a family friend. I was an apprentice chef at that time and fascinated by the fact there were wild turkeys roaming the fields outside the small town where I was living. I had no idea that there were wild turkeys. I thought the turkey was a domesticated bird much like a chicken. As a curious young chef I wanted to taste the difference. Little did I know that it would be one of the most memorable hunting experiences of my life.

Spring turkeys have long been a nemesis of mine. I’m not talking about a Captain Ahab and Moby Dick situation, because my efforts have been more casual than obsessive. Yet, in my 16 year hunting career I have yet to kill one. I have taken fall birds, and truthfully, my addiction to walleye fishing as well as life’s general obligations have caused turkeys to slide pretty far down the priority list some seasons. Still, I have put in many hours and been defeated by missed shots, other hunters, hung-up birds, season ending injuries, and a handful of other occasions when Murphy’s Law was the only explanation why there was a tag in my noodle soup in place of the turkey.
