Ep. 3: Calling and Killing Turkeys with Chris Parrish

Play Episode


In this episode, I’m talking about turkeys with not only one of the best turkey callers of all time, but one of the best turkey hunters of all time: Chris Parrish. We talk about what hunters should look for in picking a spot to setup, all while quickly reading the turkey’s behavior and the situation to determine what your next move should be. Once we figure out where and how to setup, we move into calling. We touch on what Chris’ calling strategy is, whether it is necessary to be a great caller, and if he could only take three turkey sounds to the woods, which ones they would be.
