Missouri Youth Turkey Hunter
Success during a Missouri youth turkey season hunt. Dad reported that from the first day of scouting until the hunt he spent just over 30 hours scouting. Great dads make great children.
The same youth hunter on the next trip harvested a Jake filling his two tags for the season.
We offer spring turkey hunts for those that want to hunt to their level including jake harvest for the novice. Experienced turkey hunters will not find much excuse for not harvesting toms and most wait for that distinctly bigger tom that is easy to see in most flocks and tougher to tag.
MAHA takes Missouri wild turkey hunting as good as it is and makes it a better hunt.
Spring Turkey Hunt
From an overcast morning, second week of Missouri's spring season, by one of the Association staff, John Wenzel, a day when the hens were active and the toms slim. Notice the open ground typical of many good agricultural areas.
Our land is 100% private and leased for our exclusive use. And, our lease land is in the region that has a wild production history suited for the new hunter as well as the trophy tom hunter.
Once on that land the Association hunter conducts his own do it yourself hunt. All land use is by telephone reservation and are to individually numbered leases ensuring hunter separation and limited daily pressure.
When a hunter reserves that property his motivation for doing so is that prevents us from placing anyone else on that ground when he is there. Our hunts are that isolated. What every hunter wants, to be left alone to hunt.
MAHA has additional advantages that may seem inconsequential at first until analyzed.
One is the average age of our members is in the upper 40’s. The value of this is that our hunters are seasoned, frequently decades long experienced hunters that when they hit the fields they are largely in the execution phase of their career rather than the learning phase. This means a lot less impact on the habitat and the turkeys. Our turkey hunters are there to seriously hunt and will spend fewer days in the field than the average hunter through the combination of their skill level and being left alone on the private land farms.
The next MAHA advantage is that hunters are attracted to our organization as it is a self guided hunting group that is a business and not a hunting club. As a business all are treated friendly and no one is in a friendship.
Our self guided hunters are tested through experience and frequently seek the added adventure of new ground. While on the ground these hunters have the skill necessary to move in and out with minimum impact, typically call less than public land hunters, harvest faster than the average turkey hunter. Mid-America Hunting Association turkey hunting statistics compared to Missouri statewide turkey harvest averages showing private land skilled hunters have nearly twice the success of others.
When it comes to the Missouri little can be written here that has not been repeatedly written elsewhere.
What we have added to Missouri wild turkey hunting is to make the good even better by having members that have seasoned their hunter skills through the years and we make private lease land available to the average hunter.
Not only are those that are skilled are easier to work with within the Association, they are often more likely to hunt for that refinement of their skill just to see how much better they can get.
