Nebraska Turkey Hunt For A SUPER Jake [POSSE]

by Josh Dahlke

Content Director MORE FROM Josh

After 2 days of turkey hunting in Nebraska, the POSSE crew closes in on a crafty gobbler. When the loud-mouthed bird finally reveals himself, the crew gets a SUPER surprise.

Pete Osterman used HuntStand Pro to find a likely roost area and a killable gobbler, but he had no idea what he was in for. Sleepless nights and a wild goose (er, turkey) chase ensued, and a hard-gobbling jake threw Pete for a loop.

WATCH ANOTHER NEBRASKA TURKEY HUNT FROM THE POSSE

Turkey hunt long enough, and encounter enough gobblers, and you’ll eventually learn that you can’t judge a turkey by his gobble. A mature tom can have a weak gobble, while a jake can have a thundering gobble that sounds like the oldest strutter in the woodlot. Keep chasing those gobbles until you know what you’re dealing with!

Even though Pete thought he was pursuing a longbeard, he was happy to tag what turned out to be the solo “super jake.” The bird nearly escaped, but the Aimpoint Micro S-1 red-dot sight helped Pete to get on target quickly and finish the job.

Turkey hunting in Nebraska is great for the traveling turkey hunter for a number of reasons. You’ll find plentiful Merriam’s, Rio Grande, Eastern and hybrid turkeys scattered across the state. Even better, a three-bird limit will keep you busy as you explore Nebraska’s state and federal public lands.

Last season, Pete and the POSSE headed to Wyoming to hunt Merriam’s turkeys in the Black Hills. Everyone managed to connect with beautiful longbeards during the 3-day adventure, but Pete came out of the hunt with the trophy gobbler of a lifetime.
