Always be Prepared for the Rain

Most determined Iowa turkey hunters would not let a light rain put a damper on their hunt.   However, here are some tips for dealing with Iowa turkey hunting in case you should find yourself caught in a steady rain…

When it rains, you will want to fine-tune your Iowa turkey hunting calling techniques.   The general rule of thumb here is to switch to friction calls rather than traditional mouth calls. Reason being is that friction calls can be heard at a much greater distance than conventional mouth calls. Use carbon and acrylic strikers if you have them, as these can help greatly with friction calls when it is raining.
