One more wild turkey hunting option of another choice of time and location the MAHA turkey hunter has that allows for more field time or easier vacation day scheduling.
Comparing to a guide service the hunter must fit into that guide's available schedule and is limited to the hunt in that one time slot within that one locality. With our approach the hunter decides when to hunt compliant with state turkey season regulations.
Average work-a-day hunters that hunt on their own. No one to judge skill or technique except the hunter to himself.
Another comparison are the hunter's that hunt their own land that they either own or have as a lease. In this case the hunt is to the same location each time out. In our case we add the adventure of making a do it yourself hunt and exploring new ground. No one hunter is limited to just one spot.
We have the abundant acreage, plenty of birds and very limited hunter pressure. The exact combination required for that hunter to be successful.
