Hunting methods All hunting methods (9)

Hunting Rio Grande turkey is not too different from hunting other turkey populations. The main method is calling. Today turkeys are so abundant that hunters don’t always have to scout for a gobbler before trying to attract the bird in range, but may even call from ground blinds built in areas where birds are known to frequent. Decoys are often used to distract the attention of the birds away from the hunters. Rio Grande turkeys can often be seen in the open, so a hunter can spot the tom from the distance and stalk them.

Why hunt Rio Grande Turkey?

Rio Grande turkey is lighter in color than the eastern subspecies, but darker than the western populations. It’s not the biggest subspecies of wild turkey, with males seldom growing bigger than 20 pounds, but has long legs and sharp spurs. With its open and wide-spaced habitat, a hunter must be more active and focus on the “run and gun” tactics, which attracts those who are somewhat bored with sitting in a bling. Rio Grande turkey is not only an essential part of any turkey slam, but an exciting hunting quarry in its own right.
