Spring has finally arrived and that means it’s time for warmer weather. Buds will begin blooming and forming a beautiful shade of green across the land and for many avid hunters, it means spring turkey season! For most hunters there is nothing better than the sound of a spring gobbler sounding off through the morning fog, roosted in a nearby oak tree, looking for his next lucky lady to try a woo. Gobblers are sometimes unpredictable and there is nothing more important than being able to set up at a moment’s notice to bag that bird of a lifetime. Whether you’re a seasoned veteran or just beginning, Redhead has a great line of turkey vests and chairs to always have you prepared for whatever that wise ol’ gobbler throws your way.
If you are just beginning to get into the wonderful world of chasing turkeys or don’t want something “too fancy” a great vest to start with is the Redhead Classic Turkey Vest. This vest is economical in price at only $29.99, while still being very functional. This vest offers an upper portion that is constructed to provide full range of motion, it features two large external pockets that give you plenty of space for calls, masks, gloves, etc., a rear game bag for when you bag your trophy bird, fully adjustable shoulder and chest straps, a drop-down seat cushion to help aid in comfort no matter when you have to set up, and a detachable blaze orange safety flag.
