Montana Turkey Hunting
Spring turkey hunting is done in Southeastern Montana. Which means BIG strutting long beard Merriam gobblers! The Merriam is known for being one of the most vocal of the 4 turkey subspecies found within the lower 48 states. Hunting the Merriam differs from typical Eastern gobbler hunting in that lots of wide-open terrain allows hunters to use both roosting as a means of locating toms and glassing for toms after they have left the roost. No matter which method proves to be the most successful, the sight of a strutting Merriam tom, with his white band of feathers forming his fan, coming to the call, is heart-pounding excitement. My spring turkey hunters are housed in a ranch style house set-up with all the conveniences including fully furnished house, single beds, separate rooms for couples or families, shower and toilet facilities, satellite TV, and home-cooked meals. Anyone flying will use Billings, Montana. The first evening, after arriving, hunters stay at a local motel. Flyers use a “no-charge” shuttle service to the motel. Hunters are met at the motel in late morning the day they are scheduled to go into camp. Hunters that drive can follow us into camp in their own vehicle. Turkey tags can be purchased either online or over-the-counter. A conservation license and base-hunting license are prerequisites! The total cost for a turkey license is $115.00.
