Turkey hunting enjoys such a dedicated following because it is so unique compared to other hunting types. It incorporates aspects of both small game and big game hunting. In some ways it is intense and in other ways it is laid back, in some ways it takes a lot of skill and knowledge in other ways turkey hunting is as simple as it can be.
With turkey hunting you have a bunch of toys to master (learn about turkey calls here). You can actually practice turkey hunting, or at least the calling aspects of the sport right at home. This isn’t something most other hunter groups get to do.
We all know that men are nothing more than big boys with more expensive toys. So turkey hunters get lots of enjoyment when they play with their toys, practice their slate calls, mouth calls or simply pack their vest for their next turkey hunting excursion. Some turkey hunters seem to get as much enjoyment from the preparation and strategizing as they do from the actual turkey hunt.
The difficulty in getting that trophy gobbler and the fact that more often than not the turkey wins I can understand why the preparation is often more enjoyable than the hunt. We all like to hunt but getting made a fool of by a stupid bird takes its toll however it is exactly that toll that makes the successes and turket hunting in general so damn enjoyable.
