Overview

Ray Eye is one of the most renowned turkey hunters in America. With more than thirty years' experience as a professional hunting guide, he has taken part in every aspect of the sport, including speaking across the country about hunter safety, conservation, and turkey-hunting techniques. In PRACTICAL TURKEY HUNTING STRATEGIES he makes his expertise available to turkey hunters everywhere. Whether you hunt in spring or fall, with a gun or with bow and arrow, alone or with a partner, you will find a wealth of practical information in this invaluable book.
With so many turkey-calling titles to his credit—including two National Championships and the World Natural Voice Championship—it is fitting that Ray includes a thorough discussion of calling techniques, from beginning to highly advanced. But he emphasizes that calling is only one of the many crucial aspects of turkey hunting: Also vital to a successful hunt are locating the turkeys, finding a strategic calling position, choosing proper equipment, and ensuring your own safety and that of other hunters.
Combining the knowledge of a living legend with the humor and excitement of Ray's own turkey-hunting tales, PRACTICAL TURKEY HUNTING STRATEGIES is a treasure trove for anyone who wants to learn more about the fascinating—even addicting—sport of turkey hunting.

    Ray Eye does a great job of relaying tactics to try based on his decades of hunting turkeys. I have read it twice and used his recommendations successfully. Well worth the money.
