Mike Chamberlain has forgotten more about wild turkeys than many will ever know. Chamberlain leads the University of Georgia’s Wild Turkey Lab. Since writing his dissertation on turkeys and predation, Chamberlain has studied the birds for almost 30 years. What he has learned about turkeys has made him a better hunter, and we are hoping it can help you, too. In this episode Mike and I discuss; toms eventually coming back to where they heard a call, how to use the characteristics of different subspecies to your advantage, the process of nesting and how the flock changes throughout the spring.
