Turkey hunting can be a crazy adventure, often due to totally unexpected happenings. I once hunted a tract of mountain ground in Virginia when an airplane began spraying for gypsy moth. Normally, you’d think that the roaring engine would scare the feathers from a gobbler, yet each time the plane banked and made a deep vibrating sound, a turkey gobbled.

Other times stray dogs may wonder by, a fox or coyote may show up, or an aggressive hunter may move in on your set-up. Matt Wettish had one of those days, and shares his kitchen-sink tip, which saved the day.
