Whether you are a seasoned pro or a beginning turkey hunter, The Turkey Hunter Podcast is your show. In this podcast, turkey hunters, like you, will learn to have more turkeys on your hunting property and more successful turkey hunts. Your host, Andy Gagliano, will teach you this through tips and interviews with turkey hunting pros, wildlife management experts, and entertaining turkey hunting stories from his years of turkey hunting around the country. Some of the topics covered in this podcast are how to film your hunts, properly positioning your decoys, hunting afternoon and field turkeys, dealing with henned up gobblers, turkey calling tips, benefits of control burns, the breeding cycle of hens, as well as new product reviews.

337 - A Deafeningly Silent Minnesota Turkey Hunt
A Deafeningly Silent Minnesota Turkey Hunt
This week, Cameron and I share my 2020 Minnesota turkey hunt with you.
Chip, Yankee John, and I hunted there in the spring of 2020 to try to get those 2 guys each a bird in the state.
When you stumble across a public land bird that wants to play ball, that is usually all it takes to make a trip like that an amazing one. Chip and I found one this particular morning. He gobbled hard. He gobbled a lot. He was lonely, and he loved a southern accent.
There was just one problem with this hunt. One big problem.
Listen in and enjoy this week's great episode.

Hearing Them Helps with Killing Them with Bill Dickinson

In this interview Bill discusses the correlation between hearing loss and dementia and Alzheimer's. We also discuss how hearing loss has been left out of the overall health awareness initiative that has been pushed for the past several decades.
We talk about how Tetra's products can help those of us with hearing loss to hear turkeys better while we are hunting. And, how Tetra can help us to prevent further hearing loss while we are hunting.

Eddie Salter joins me and Cameron this week to discuss some early season turkey hunting tactics.
Early season can be a difficult time to be in the turkey hunting woods for all of us. Dealing with henned up toms can present us with many mornings and entire days with very little gobbling. Toms that don't gobble can be hard to locate and hunt.
