In Episode #5 of The Wired To Hunt Podcast we discuss whitetail lessons that can be learned from turkey hunting. It’s our belief that any time you get out into the woods and put yourself up against a wild animal, it will sharpen your skills as a hunter and in turn, help you out come deer season. Today we discuss topics such as calling, decoying, how deer and turkeys use terrain to their advantage and much more. And along the way we also share a couple great turkey and deer hunting stories too! You’re going to enjoy this one.
