Patience counts in spring gobbler hunting

<a href="" target="_blank">
Nine months pregnant, Mary Jo Casalena was camouflaged and in position for turkey.

"I was uncomfortable and I couldn't move much," she said. "Normally, after a while I would have moved to another position, but I didn't have the energy to move. I stayed for 2 1/2 hours in one spot."

That's when the turkeys came into view.

In the five years since she learned to stay put, Casalena, a wild turkey biologist for the Pennsylvania Game Commission, said she's been changing position less frequently when hunting for spring gobblers.

"People don't have any patience anymore," she said. "Spring turkey hunting is a patience game. That's why scouting is so important."

Before picking a spot you can be confident in, search for nearby evidence of turkey habitation -- particularly the signature signs of big toms.
