    Wow they sure will see you! Makes it impressive when someone's able to stalk up close enough for a shot

    On top of excellent vision. They have equal ability for pin pointing where you are as soon as you call, so be ready

    I didn’t know they can see UV. This is my first year trying to shoot one.

    Great info! That’s really amazing how the animals that we enjoy taking every year are actually so much better equipped then we will ever really be able to be!

    It makes fanning up to a turkey all the more fun. I can only imagine what goes through their head when the fan drops!!!

    When I took the turkey course, the instructor said they can see a pin drop, I had a hen at about 40 yards away from me , I thought about what he said and just for fun I started to raise my gun from my lap and before I got it to my shoulder the hen started running away, I thought they really do have eyes in the back of there head, just thought I’d share that little story

    Great info. I appreciate it a lot.

    I was once told by an “old timer” that a turkey can read the newspaper at 100yds! That about sums it up.

    This is why I frown on using blinds. If you take away pretty much their only defense what chance do they have more often than not.

  • Steve's avatar

    How can I share your info from this page.

  • Trevor's avatar

    @Barry ah, man, I've told this story 100 times, lol. I was hunting under an old cedar tree one time with branches that hung down in front of you and nearly touched the ground in places. I had a creek lined with brush and shrubs in front of me at about 15 yards and a ridge behind that. The creek was in a little ditch so it was lower than I was. Anyhow I saw a long beard headed my direction down the ridge, he would have to drop into the creek bottom, behind the brush, to pop out into the field behind me. I waited for him to drop into the creek bottom and raised my shotgun waiting for him to come out and I never saw that turkey again lol.
