Turkey hunting in the Northeast is fast and furious, with the ability to hunt in multiple states within a short distance. See what happens when The POSSE books a trip to knock out gobblers in Vermont, New Hampshire and Maine during a hardcore 4-day hunt.
All rabid turkey hunters need to check out the hunting in New England. With plenty of birds and plenty of opportunities to hunt them, it’s an almost idyllic spring adventure. Come May, the Vermont, New Hampshire and Maine spring turkey seasons are open. In addition, tags for all three states are available over the counter. No draws. No uncertain wait. For nonresidents, that’s a little slice of turkey hunting heaven.
Rolling With The Challenges
However, even in this Northeast turkey hunting haven seemingly ideal setups can backfire. In one case Josh passes a marginal opportunity on a wary public-land gobbler—a bird that, within minutes, is shot by another nearby hunter. Then, The POSSE is forced to recreate a successful hunt when the fast action causes the videographer to forget to hit the “record” button. The result? Missing the stellar live action. More challenges arise when POSSE member Jake misses two gobblers in two states.
Northeast Birds Aplenty
However, the substantial benefits of the Northeast save the long weekend. With plenty of birds to chase, and some help from the many-featured HuntStand app, another turkey encounter is rarely more than mere minutes away. While hunting with members of the Just Hunt Club, the team manages to go six for six in Vermont and New Hampshire on opening day. The POSSE closes out the exciting action with an incredible flydown hunt. Two gobblers are down for less than a minute before the Savage Renegauge speaks.
