OK guys, turkey season is upon us. I am not a seasoned turkey hunter. I know their eye-sight is second to none especially picking out colors. Is there a particular colored fletching to use or to stay away from when trying to bag one of these birds? Any information is appreciated, thanks!

If in a blind, probably won't matter. If on the ground in the open, for safety sake I'd think twice about red, white, blue. I personally like flourescent yellow, & that's what I use for everything. You could always cover them w/ fletch covers, that way you can shoot what you want. Best of luck, share your pics w/ us when you kill one. Better yet, try & film the hunt, it would be great video.

I've always preferred fletching that I can see but you're on the right track about it being a problem when hunting Turkey. The main problem with bright colors is if you're using a bow quiver, once you get a number of arrows together you've got a bright flag, that unless you're inside a blind, a Turkey will easily see. I don't worry so much about the single arrow on the bow string but I use a fletching cover for the quiver.

Good camo is a must if you're not using a commercial blind. That means the bow also cause once that bird is in range the movement required to take the shot needs to be kept at a minimum, I've been busted so many times at this point.

I've done a lot of experimenting with camo, ended up having my best luck with a home-made guille suit. Even if using regular camo I've found that breaking up the outline of the head/shoulders and covering the face is critical to success. Of course, the hands must be covered too.

Good Luck
