    Do turkeys have a good sense of smell?

  • #2
    No. You can relax about the scent issues that are so important to deer hunters. But turkeys have great hearing, keen eyesight and wide peripheral vision. Be still, be quiet, but feel free to stink the place up--the turkeys won't care but your friends might.

      Their lack of a sense of smell lets me use my clothes soaked in insect repellent over and over without washing. It's a good thing turkey hunting is a mostly solitary sport so that I don't gross anybody out.

        Their eyes and ears are so good that if they could smell too no one would kill one.
