    For a person who has never turkey hunted and has no clue where the turkeys are, How would a person find them? Do you just hike until you find where they are hanging out?

    pre season Scouting!!!!!!!!!!!

    Theres turkeys all over the place,but you really need to scout it out first or its a waste of time,(i made that mistake)no different than hunting any other game animal.you have to know where they are period....their patterns......and your surounding area.you can sit all day where they arent or all day where the birds are...........On public land or private it doesnt matter.....good luck iam sure others will chime in with more under their belt than me.............:peace:

    Maybe I should take you some time. I think you are a nice guy, but not real brilliant. I could probably teach you a thing or 20.

    Dude, I'm a redneck. You city boys would have to hunt for 2 years until you figure out your ass from your ground blind. Me, if I spend 10 minutes in the turkey woods, I know it all. Not that much different than deer really, they are just smaller and respond to different sounds.

    Get a hoot owl call, go out in the woods about 15 minutes before dark when they are flying up to the roost. Blow the call right at dark, where they gobble from is where they will be flying down from the roost (9/10 times) first thing in the morning. Its hard to call them at first light but if you are lucky enough, they will come across your path. Later in the day, when the hens go to sit on their eggs, the flock busts up and you have a better chance of calling a lonely gobbler.

    LOL...whether he made it up or not, he is correct. My problem is getting them to come to me once they hit the ground! I know exactly where they roost and I can get them to gobble, but our turkeys are just flat out lazy! I don't give up easy though and will be back in the woods next weekend. Anybody ever hear that it is hard to get a turkey to come down hill? Or across a creek?

    We had 2 Tom's gobbling their heads off a few weeks ago, but they just would NOT come down the hill to take a broadhead in the piehole...I couldn't figure out why :noidea:
