Afternoons and evenings can be great times to target turkeys, especially late in the season

Most diehard turkey hunters would pick first light over any other time to be in the woods, for obvious reasons. While early morning is usually a gobble fest and can be a great time to call in birds, the afternoon and evening shift can produce plenty of action as well. (Stock photo)

If you rewind the clock and look back at the history of the turkey season in Minnesota, you’ll see that a few decades ago, things were vastly different.
One of the changes, that’s a huge benefit, is the opportunity to hunt until sunset. While most turkey hunters won’t be caught dead not hunting at sunrise if they have the chance, the afternoon shift is a great time to get out there. This is especially true during the last few weeks of the spring season.
