That is quite a wait!  Time to apply for tags where there are more turkeys?!  :G  Of course, there is also a bit more of a hit in the wallet >:D!  Getting the tag is one thing, getting the bird is another!  Have a good time prepping and hunting

Torture from now until spring 2019!  The best kind!
Guns have triggers. Bicycles have wheels. Trees and bows have wooden limbs.

Thanks for the replies fellas.
   We have a small batch of turkeys in Alberta Canada. Can go to Montana but it's expensive. It's something I wanted to do for a long time. Mostly I blame you guys. Reading posts about shooting turkeys. What's a fella to do. I am able to have good hunting around me. I get to hunt antelope every 8 years with a bow, Mule deer and whitetail buck or doe every year.
   It will be a tough hunt. I'm as green as grass on turkeys. Oh the wait will be painful at times. Some bow hunting and maybe a flintlock hunt or 2 will settle my soul. Got 9 months to wait it out, Seems I done that twice before.
Thanks Leroy

Go in the field with a camera and call them in, and shoot them
 Use a cannon, not nikon. That way you can say you shot the tukeys with a cannon. Practice calling them in close, and using a camera gets you practiced at moving without detection.
Tread softly and carry a bent stick.

Dont seek your happiness through the approval of others

Not being able to turkey hunt would suck! It's my favorite critter to chase. Good luck with the hunt. I sure hope you bag one!
