Hunting turkeys, a challenging game
She started hunting turkeys five years ago with her dad in Minnesota. What she loves the most is that it’s an interactive style of hunting with the calling and turkeys coming to you. She hunts both with a gun and a bow, which require two different techniques. Hunting with the bow requires getting much closer to the prey and is a lot more challenging. For Ali, hunting is about much more than getting her prey: it’s also about taking the time to disconnect, watching the sun rise and set, and spending time outdoors with her family – she hunts with her husband, dad, brother-in-law and nieces, all while immersing in nature.
The 2022 hunt was amazing. I called, a few turkeys gobbled, I called, they gobbled again. And again. They came up the trail, crossed the field straight to my decoy. And there he was. What a rush!
How does the side-by-side and track systems help with turkey hunting?
To get to our hunting grounds, we need to travel through various types of terrain including mud, swampy areas and since open season is in the spring, we often must deal with snow. The track systems are a great ally to provide flotation and to help us avoid getting stuck.
