Never wear bright colors, especially not red, white, blue or black because these are the colors of a wild turkey gobbler. Watch out for red, white or blue on your socks, t-shirts, hooded sweatshirts, hats, bandannas, etc. Wear dark undershirts and socks, and pants long enough to be tucked into boots.

Will turkey come out in the rain?
Rain: I love hunting in light to moderate rain because I have a good idea what turkeys will do. Generally, birds will congregate and feed in open areas, such as pastures, meadows, clear-cuts or agricultural fields. For rainy fly-down hunts, I set up at likely areas near roosts.
Do you need camo gloves for turkey hunting?
Camo helps, but is not mandatory. If you do everything right wearing solid muted colors works pretty well. The camo may help keep you undetected if you make a mistake and move a bit at the wrong time. I would wear a facemask of some type and gloves to help hide your face and hands.
