One season is all it takes to learn what not to do in the turkey woods. Our expert outlines the top 10 mistakes turkey hunters make and how you can avoid them. (May 2007)

By J. Michael Kelly

The big willow roosting tree that shades the corner of a hidden meadow was empty and the local flock was already on the ground. I decided to set out a hen decoy and do some aggressive calling in the hope that a footloose gobbler might decide to check out the new hen in the neighborhood.
