March marks the beginning of spring which, of course, means that the spring turkey hunt you’ve been looking forward to is right around the corner. If you’re lucky in just a couple of weeks you’ll be sitting at eye level with a creature that has telescopic vision and the ability to flee the scene in upwards of 25-55 mph. So dial in that bow and prepare for ultimate concealment because this turkey season it’s going to make all the difference.
Turkeys are like superheroes when it comes to vision. No, it’s not x-ray but close enough. Turkeys have telescopic vision and are able to detect motion over 100 yards away. They are able to see roughly 270 degrees wide and up to three times greater than a human’s 20/20 vision.
