  • I just bought a ground blind a year ago and I was wondering if I could just set it up in the middle of the field where the turke

    I just bought a ground blind a year ago and I was wondering if I could just set it up in the middle of the field where the turkeys travel? Or would they be scared of it and avoid it? Thanks

    Setting up in the middle of the field on a well defined travel route might prove suspect--especially if a bird was through Tuesday and You are there Thursday morning.I have seen hunters use round bales of hay as blinds--pretty common in most agricultural areas-birds have seen them time and again.I am not saying your set-up will not work but I always give some consideration to blending in with whatever situation/landscape that is predominant.

      I think you'll have beter luck seating up on the feilds edges, the blind will blind in better.

          Sorry can't hunt turkey like you do a goose there goose. Set up on the edge and still place plenty of cover in front of your blind and watch those dark holes/windows, they will spook a gobbler as well. Happened to me last year..lol
