Camo for Turkey Hunting

4 posts in this topic

I am looking at purchasing some new camo for spring turkey hunting in central mn and am wondering if anyone can give me some advice on what to go with? Color? Manufacturer? Thanks

For spring time it's gotta have lots of green. I love my green Predator, but it's kinda hard to find. That being said, I spend a lot of time in a pop up blind. In that case, black is the color of choice.

Personally I like the realtree HD patterns. Something with green is good. Realty is most camo patterns will do the job nicely.

Another thing to consider is on what season you hunt. The early seasons there is very little green in the woods most springs. By the later seasons there's a lot of green. Reality though as there is more foilage the camo is less important and there is lots of natural cover available. Main thing is to sit still.

Good Luck!

I'm also a fan of the Predator line of camo for spring turkeys. As Borch mentioned, there is no substitute for sitting still, and time of season is of vital importance when selecting camo.

The main purpose of it is to break up your outline, and avoid looking like a blob of any one color or shape that can be picked out. That's why I like any pattern with quite a few limbs and 3D-like effect such as the Predator. I wouldn't shy away from most camo patterns, save the ones that are darker/lighter against opposing backgrounds. Some of the older mossy oak patterns were a bit too dark for me, esp. when damp/wet, against a later spring background.

      Big Hatches usually get the slow bite over in a hurry! Hopefully this will only last a few more days! Boated 22 walleyes today but only managed to keep 7 small eaters in 6 hours of fishing. Cliff

      They used to have a nice gun range but some stupid locals shot their garage and blamed the range!

      I'm only 8-10 miles south of smurfy with the same experience on the lake. Mn Fishing Pros is a group of 4 guys who guide in the area & so is Jeff Sundin. Not sure what any of them have for experience on that lake but you might try to contact 1 of them to see if they have a opening that fits your time slot or they might even have some info on the lake that they are willing to share

      Headed up this weekend and next weekend.  WIll be fishing mostly Frazer.  Sounds like the hatch is on.  If anyone has been fishing walleye on frazer in the past few days, got any tips on depth?  Presentation?     Sounds like crawlers are the ticket right now.   Thanks

      I recommend considering other lakes.  URL by the 4th is nearly void of walleye.  8 years or so ago, we did a two-family trip and only caught fresh water drum.  Star Trib Article

      I was honored to be part of the "Veterans on Lake Superior" trip again this year. Channel six did a nice story about the Veterans. They were a great group out on the water.   http://www.kbjr6.com/video?clipId=13445592&autostart=true
