This is my first season hunting turkeys. I am looking forward to the next two weeks since legal hunting hours go to sunset. This means a few more opportunities for me to get out in the woods. It also means I won't doze off in the blind at 9 a.m. I am looking for advice, pointers and
dos and don'ts for afternoon hunting. How do you approach it?

I run and gun just like morning. at noon if i can get a bird to gobble its toast! toms freak out once the hens sneak off. as the day gets later, try to find a rosst spot where the tom " jump a cliff" to get in a roost tree. hunt the ridge and pull the trigger! good luck

If the toms are breeding hens in the early part of the morning and then roaming mid to late morning to find hens not on the nest, you may find a tom feeding early afternoon. Check food locations.

If you know where they are likely to roost, sit near that area and try to catch them before thy put on the pajamas and head to bed.
