There are two basic types of turkey hunting, Ambush and Stalking. Most hunters use a combination of both. We find that when you try to do both, you do neither well.
Ambush is using a permanent ground blind, located near a known roosting area that fronts an open area, and simply out waiting the turkeys (much like deer hunting). This requires a minimum of calling but decoys, usually a hen and a jake, are essential. This technique is great for hunters who have limited ability to walk or run significant distances over some pretty rough terrain.
Stalking is simply going to a known roosting area, listening for a gobbler and a "fly down", and trying to circle the bird and put yourself in his general path. This requires a well developed calling technique, a lot of stamina and the ability to be perfectly still in a crouched or sitting position for a considerable period of time.
Both methods can be successful when employed properly.
Wise Olde Pine can provide the Turkey Hunter with either.
We strongly recommend that you use a guide if you intend
to stalk a bird, even if you intend to do your own calling.

We usually limit the number of hunters to 2 or 3 in order to give them the required personal attention they deserve. We also ask that you tip the guides for their services, even if you do your own calling.
