2011 Spring Turkey Season

2011 Spring Turkey Season

Spring for Miller Mathews Outfitters means two things, sheds and turkeys. This year we seemed to find plenty of both. Teaming up with Kyle Metzger of Newcastle, Nebraska, and Trent Siegle or Dwight, Kansas was another awesome season. We set out to film a short highlight video of how we hunt turkeys and ended up with nearly 50 successful hunts on camera.

The beauty of our operation with the three states is the fact that we can hunt Merriam, Rio, and Eastern turkeys along with some interesting varieties of hybrids in between. For the 2012 season we are offering three day hunts for an economy priced hunt package of 650 dollars per hunt including lodging and a fully guided hunt. Meals may be included for an additional 50 dollars per day.

We can incorporate any type of customized hunt to the hunters specific desires. Multiple states may be hunted to include different sub species of the birds. If you need a Merriam to finish your slam then we can put you in Western Nebraska, or South Dakota. Rio’s are in Western Kansas, and Eastern’s in Eastern Kansas. Each state offers something special and the properties we hunt in them all have high populations of birds.

We conduct our hunts a little differently than the average hunt you see on tv. Last year we started using the new Dave Smith Decoys and primarily using their breeding pair. When archery hunting out of a double bull blind we take 3 steps from the blind and set up the decoys. Rather than relying on our calling, we attribute our success to scouting and preperation in finding birds and getting in between where they are and where we think they are going. We had countless encounters with big toms beating up our decoys mere feet from the blind. The combination of the decoys and being in the right spot payed off for us time and time again.

I posted the link at the bottom of this article. If it takes too long to download click on the HD button on the bottom right side of the screen to take off the High Definition so it will download faster. Give us some feedback on what you think about the video and shoot me a message or give me a call to talk about booking a hunt for next spring. It will be here before we know it.
