Always make a point that you are in the right position to be able to hit the target 100%.
Make sure also that you're equipments are complete.

I spent my first 4 seasons never seeing or hearing a bird.

Finally I figured out that I should hunt where there are turkeys.

I saw a bunch in my 5th season and that was encouraging but I was unable to connect with my arrow. Got close and rolled one but just grazed the top and he kept on going.

6th season I finally got my first archery turkey.

The most important thing I learned from all of this is that you are more likely to succeed if you hunt where there are turkeys.

Second most important thing I learned is that they can see even the slightest movement and when they see you, they waste no time leaving you in the dust. Conceal yourself well and don't move.

Best wishes.

Its in your blood, the birds know it!!!! Just go by yourself, the birds know they don't have a chance and will walk up and turn themselves in.
