Turkey Scouting with Rogue Ridge E-Bikes

One of the first steps in turkey scouting is understanding what turkeys have done in the past. This is crucial to the current season and future success – after all, gobblers tend to be creatures of habit.  Learning how turkeys interact within the landscape on your hunting property is of utmost importance.  Is there a landscape barrier they won’t cross?  A specific roost area they prefer over another?  An annual strut zone?  The list of site-specific situations goes on and on, and how well you know them and understand them usually plays a big part in your success.  Don’t just learn the ground you hunt, learn how the turkeys use that particular piece of ground.

Putting eyes on Spring Birds the evening before your hunt is a game changer scouting tactic.  You don’t necessarily need a roadside field for this method to be effective.  Driving a daily loop on logging roads with a Rogue Ridge Electric Bike being stealthy and silent will leave you able to ultimately scout hidden fields easily and can be extremely effective by putting eyes on toms strutting from a long way off and catch them going to roost without spooking them and formulate a game plan for the next morning’s hunt.

Scouting from a Rogue Ridge E-Bike is also a great way to keep the pressure off the birds.  If you don’t have any fields you can see from the road on your turkey hunting property, you can still gain valuable information by observing what the turkeys are doing in your area. You can usually get a good idea if they are hened up, with other toms, or alone – all key observations when it comes to deciding what decoys and calls to use. 

If you are looking for a hunting eBike that will allow you to quickly get from point A to B while not being seen, then the RF750 Mossy Oak Folding Bike might be right for you! Designed with the big game hunter in mind, the RF750 has a maximum carrying capacity of up to 300 pounds.

With a durable aluminum alloy 6061 frame, this bike will have no problem handling the pressures of deep woods hunting. This impressive bike is powered by a Bafang Mid M620 ULTRA 750Watt motor that will give you a top speed of 20 MPH without pedaling.

Last, but certainly not least, strap up your boots and get out there.  Identifying turkey sign may not be as easy as finding deer sign in the woods, but if you know what you’re looking for, certain markers can clue you in on a big strutter’s whereabouts or a breeding flocks movement patterns.  Using an E-Bike will most certainly get you to where you want to be undetected and in half the amount of time to help you bag a big ol’ longbeard this season.

In-Season Scouting for Deer with Rogue Ridge E-Bikes

Most deer hunters want to target mature bucks. And just about all mature whitetail hunters believe in In-Season scouting for deer, especially if it involves scouting without disturbing the woods. This is where scouting from a Rogue Ridge E-Bike pays off. 

We start our full scouting arsenal on September 1st every year by setting up as many trail cameras as possible to cover early feeding patterns of mature bucks. Many great early season spots include travel corridors and staging areas in and around food sources. The strategy with this approach is to inventory the majority of the bucks using your property so you can begin to develop a strategy. Access should always be at top of mind when it comes to scouting and hunting mature whitetails. 

Getting in and out of stand sites and camera sets without spooking or alerting deer with your presence is critical to having a chance at that shooter buck. Using a Rogue Ridge E-Bike to mask your access to and from stands is a crucial component to the overall game plan. These Bikes have so many features but in the grand scheme of things, it is the perfect bike for deer hunting. Rogue Ridge’s lineup of E-Bikes can add a tremendous advantage to your hunting playbook, allowing you to achieve silent and scent-free access to your stand site or stand access point. Our E-Bikes allow you to travel silently from 20 to 65 miles on a single charge and with speeds up to 30mph. Much faster than walking to and from stand sites leaving scent, and much quieter than an ATV or Side by Side, Rogue Ridge E-bikes will change the way you hunt and scout whitetails.
