The Turkey Hunter's Bible 2nd Edition
John E. Phillips
After more than 45 years of turkey-hunting experience with some of the best callers and hunters in the nation, author John E. Phillips has developed “The “Turkey Hunter’s Bible” to be a complete reference on how to find, call, take, clean and prepare the wild turkey for the table. The author has taken several birds of each subspecies of wild turkey in the continental United States and Mexico. But more importantly, he’s hunted with some of the greatest turkey hunters who ever have lived.
In “The Turkey Hunter’s Bible,” you’ll get:
- the most up-to-date, complete guide to one of America’s fastest-growing hunting sports;
- complete coverage of every aspect of the sport – hunting gear, techniques, turkey species, shooting, bowhunting and much more; and
- plenty of turkey pictures, hunting pictures and line drawings.
Using these hunting tips, you also can photograph turkeys in the wild - either with a still camera or a video camera. The mating ritual of the wild turkey gobbler is a beautiful thing to see. When a mature tom spreads his tail, calls all of his feathers to attention, so they stand and make the bird look almost twice as big as he is, he’s showing-off for the hens.
Whether you want to photograph wild turkeys or take wild turkeys, this book will provide you with the information you need to meet the toms on their own turf. However, the author issues this caution, “Turkey hunting is very addictive. The call of the wild turkey gobbler is as alluring as the call of the Sirens of ancient Greece. And, I’ve found that when the dogwoods bloom, and Jack Frost is chased-away by Mother Earth, resisting the temptation to go to the woods and call a gobbler is almost impossible.”
Be sure and check out the bonus videos in the last chapter, where the author has interviews on how to solve turkey-hunting problems with some of the greatest names in the sport, including: Will Primos, Preston Pittman, Harold Knight, Chris Parrish and Eddie Salter. To make sure your next turkey hunt is a success, this turkey ebook is a must-have.
