I know it's not all about the kill but it seems like if I were to hunt for cows nothing but horses would come in.

This was last spring during a hog hunt at my uncles' place in the hill country...of course it wasn't turkey season.

I read a Patrick McManus story once where he recommended pretending to have left the blind without your rifle then when the animals show up to laugh at you pull a second rifle from under your coat.

I got blanketed in dove twice this deer season. Wife thought it was hilarious lol Take the shotgun out for dove and see 2 or 3 every hour. Climb a tree with a 30.06 to kill deer and sit there watching 30 damn dove lounge 25 feet away smh

I have that problem with hogs while crossbow hunting. I'll be sittin in a pile of brush waitin for my buck to pop out and I'll have hogs come within three feet so I shoot them and while the are flopping their last breath my buck comes in but gets spooked. I recock and shoot as many pigs as I can because they either hang out looking at the dead ones or start growlin at me.

Turkeys get just as annoying,

I used to think turkeys were smart, but never had the fever. They will stand five yards from me watching as a pull my cell phone out to take pictures, then walk off. They must know they are safe around me. Same goes for wildcats.
