The biggest challenge of Merriam’s turkey hunting is the wide open spaces the birds favor. That means more ground to cover in search of birds, and less cover to hide the hunters from their all-seeing eyes. Scouting the evening before the hunt, with the aim to locate the birds at their roosts (with the help of “locator calls” such as coyote or owl hoot that make turkeys respond with alarm cries) is essential. If you have never hunted Merriam’s turkey before, it’s best to hire an experienced guide.
Why hunt Merriam S Turkey?
Merriam’s turkey is nearly as big as the eastern turkey, but typically has smaller beard and spurs. It has unique light colored plumage, and even more unique habits - it’s more adapted to living in wide open spaces than other turkeys. The Merriam turkey gobblers are said to be more aggressive and defensive of their territory than other subspecies, and would come to the call more readily. This offers an unforgettable hunting experience, and adding a Merriam turkey to a turkey grand slam is typically only an excuse for those who love to travel and hunt the amazing landscapes of the American West.
