Article Body:
If you are a beginning or intermediate turkey hunter, you might have
found out that it's more difficult than it seems. The turkey out in the
wild, even with it's name, is a difficult bird for someone to stalk and
hunt. The turkey has an unexpected intelligence level and keen vision and
it's survival skills should not be underestimated. It can take years for
a hunter to advance the qualifications it takes to close in on and sneak
up on a turkey. However, with a superior kind of camouflage, you can
greatly increase your odds in turkey hunting and have the edge. This
allows the hunter to close in enough to take a shot by lowering the
visibility of the turkeys.

For the person on the field, the most efficient form of camouflage out
there is the ghillie suit, which was developed over one hundred and fifty
years ago in the woodlands of Scotland. It is a suit you can place over
your regular clothes to significantly transform your form and
significantly decrease your visibility to game in the wild. Pieces of
fabric like jute or burlap hang down all over the suit, making it very
difficult for animals to see you. This makes a human wearer meld in to
their environment by breaking up the pattern and human frame. If a
hunter is being really quiet, the ghillie camo can be so efficient that
it's possible for unsuspecting game to wonder right up to them.

The ghillie suit assists turkey hunters by breaking up human patterns and
bewildering the turkey's acute sense of sight. To prevent an injured
turkey from scurrying off in the woods a hunter must get in a range to
get a quick kill shot to achieve success. A person stalking the turkeys
can cut this distance between themselves and a rafter of turkeys by
walking patiently and keeping low to the ground.

It is ideal to try and find turkeys at night as they are preparing to
roost. It is extremely difficult to sneak up on a turkey. In fact,
there's a good possibility it's already seen you if you spot a turkey out
on the field. In addition to being able to see a great distance, they
also have a broad range to their vision also, making it difficult to
stalk them from behind. To avoid predators from sneaking up on them, a
group of turkeys will often face each other in circles to cover all sides
of the field.

Remaining in a single place and waiting in a densely populated turkey
area can be a somewhat slow process that requires a lot of time being
really still. And there's always the chance that a group of wary gobblers
will see you as soon as you move and be on the retreat before you have
the opportunity to get a good shot in. It might take diligence and skill,
but it is possible to get within range of a group of turkeys. With a
powerful gun, a ghillie suit, and an effective turkey call you could
outsmart those turkeys for good.
