The Turkey Fandango

Using a turkey fan to attract birds should NEVER be tried on public land. You don’t want to be mistaken for a turkey by an eager hunter. But if you want to on private land, Wild Side Guide Chris Nischan shows how it's done.

Every spring, thousands of men and women search for an animal with a brain about the size of a walnut that can outsmart even the best hunters — the turkey. Turkey hunting is both fun and challenging…that’s why hunters are always looking for new strategies to bring home a bird. Wild Side Guide Chris Nischan takes us to Maury County, where he uses a tactic many turkey hunters might not have thought of, one that he calls the “fandango” method.

Chris cautions that the use of a turkey fan to attract a bird should NEVER be tried on public land. You don’t want to be mistaken for a turkey by a hunter who is eager to harvest one. If you would like to have Chris show you the fandango method in person, you can book a turkey hunting trip with him…just visit his website or give him a call at 615-385-1116.
