Default Alone or company?

Do you prefer to turkey hunt alone or would you rather hunt with someone? I use to love going solo when I was younger and the solitude. Now days I get much more satisfaction of hunting turkeys with someone and having them share in the experience. Seems those stories of successful past hunts are always talked about with the person that was with you for years I got my best bird 2 years ago and I was hunting with my lifelong friend. I was calling the bird up for him to shoot but at the moment of truth he whispered, You shoot him, I just want to watch. It turns out to be a giant bird and he and I were just as happy with either shooting. Just happened he wanted me to pull the trigger that morning.

I'd much rather do any type of hunting with someone these days. Back when I was younger I'd go off for a week to 10 days at a time with just myself in the woods....Done a bunch of thinking and killing....Now I just as soon have someone with me.

Might do a Solo weeks hunt this year like the old days...Might be fun.

It's more memorable with a friend or a child. Easier by yourself.

Alone, but I like to have family close by to share successful hunts with.

seriously, though...i agree with you. i have had some great times hunting with different people. and, have learned some valuable tips and tactics, that way. i wind up hunting with someone about half the time...usually someone who aint never done it...i love to see people get their first, its a rush! more and more, i end up hunting with kids, and sometimes a 3rd party parent. talk about tough! its hard enough to hide my own pudgy azz, much less, hide three!

when i get some time to myself, though...i do love to hunt alone, as well. a whole day spent in solitude, is something a man needs now and then, some more than others. its a good time to learn things about yourself. i am ready for a couple days hunt like that, and i may just stop on the way in, and toss my phone in the river, before i even set up camp.
