Haint Gobble Call

Jim Martin and I have been hunting turkeys together since the 80's when his father took us each spring to Hit & Miss Hunting Club in South Alabama. I have always been impressed with Jim's turkey calling, especially his natural mouth gobble call. However, his natural call has never been loud enough to use effectively while hunting. The new gobble calls on the market have changed the game.

I quieted my calling as they neared. I let out an occasional yelp and cluck to comfort them. I had an arrow nocked and ready. With every step, my heart beat louder. Butterflies flooded my guts as I felt blood surge through the veins in my neck, my pulse quickened. I talked myself off "the ledge" as turkeys filed into a draw at 60 yards, as I lost sight of them I knew they were still on their way.

I spent a few days at Leavellwood this summer to learn the secrets of managing freshwater lakes for monster bass from lodge owner Trey Montgomery. Although the fishing is great this time of year in the Alabama Black Belt region, and I surely learned a lot from my discussions on the Leavelwood fisheries, my ears perked up when Trey mentioned he needed to get his chufa seed in the ground.

The Ultimate Turkey Hunting Setup   -  1/10/2014

GO Outdoor University - Vol 1.
By: Sam Hall
Product Review - Advertorial

Back in the early 1900's ol' Joe didn't have many rules or much technology to help him almost eradicate the Wild Turkey population. Most likely, Joe used a rifle to pluck turkeys from the roost in bunches. How much times have changed! Modern wildlife management practices and conservation laws have helped bring back this national treasure to record numbers. But, none of this keeps hunters and manufacturers from searching for the best equipment and technology to give them the edge while turkey hunting.

ROCKY to clad hunters for The Ultimate Turkey Hunting Setup   -  1/5/2014

Global Outfitters Outdoor Articles
GO Outdoor University - Vol. 2.
By: Joe Wieczorek, The Media Group, Inc.
Product Review - Advertorial

G.O. Joe Archer, circa 1912, had to camo-up and develop new tactics before becoming much of a threat hunting turkeys with a bow. In fact, the bow toting turkey hunter reached near extinction as Native American Indians gained access to modern firearms in the 1800's. It wasn't till the very early 1900's when the first archery hobbyist mastered field archery and first considered testing their sporting skills against our almost national bird, the Wild Turkey. The transformation has taken over a hundred years. This is relatively a short span of time in evolutionary terms, and it is safe to say that both human species and Meleagris gallopavo (turkey) species are certainly alive and flourishing.

Wilderness, USA: Today at Heritage Quest wilderness camp, GO Youth councilor, Hunter Worth, pointed to the final resting place of ol' Joe the turkey hunter as the source of quakes felt across the region. Per Hunter, we were up Cemetery Hill overlooking HQ headquarters just admiring the run of gobbles that rolled up the hill from the training center below. We knew Eddie Salter and Jim Martin of GO Game Calls were dueling to perfection on two of the "Haint" gobble calls from Down N Dirty Outdoors.

Fall Turkey Tactics   -  12/19/2013

By: Bob Humphrey
Feature Article - Adventure - How to - Tips

When most folks think about turkey hunting, they think about spring, and mating season, when you try to exploit a gobbler's amorous Achilles heel by imitating a lovesick hen. It's fall now, and while most folks are thinking about deer hunting, a few die-hard aficionados of the king of North American game birds are thinking about the other turkey season. Fall birds are less inclined to come to a call, though they will if you give them a reason. You must rely more on the turkey's gregarious nature.
