Capturing a turkey hunt on video is a huge challenge and a lot of work when dealing with the extra movement, cameraman, equipment, and your quarry with some of the sharpest eyes in the woods. When it all comes together at that magic moment when a Tom gobbles in your face at 30 yards just before the shot is taken, an incredible feeling of satisfaction and accomplishment is reached. Instead of telling our friends, family, and viewers a story of what took place, they are able to watch for themselves and witness first-hand the passion and enthusiasm we have for the sport we love so much.

Talking Turkey: Live Hen Calls
There is no better teacher when it comes to learning how to make the right sounds and rhythm of a turkey’s vocabulary than the real thing. Replicating the pitch and rhythm of a hen will help you to get that gobbler fired up and heading in your direction. During one of our 2015 spring gobbler hunts the DEER30 Outdoors team had a close encounter with a very excited hen. She was convinced that another hen (Adam) had moved into her area and she was trying to find her with such dedication that she hung around for 30 minutes and comes within 3 feet of our set up! During this time, she has quite the conversation and gives us a piece of her mind. Take a look, but more importantly a listen to this encounter.
