Wild turkeys roam the woods and fields of almost all the United States. In this series of videos, professional wildlife photographer Doug Gardner shows you set-up, planning, and shooting techniques for photographing wild turkeys in nature. He scouts locations to find where the birds roost, and builds a camouflage blind made from tree branches. From local farmers and conservationists, he discovers the best times to photograph wild turkeys are early morning and late afternoon. Hidden in the blind, Doug captures amazing portraits of gobblers and hens through a telephoto lens. You will learn why the key to capturing memorable images of wild turkeys is to know their habits.
