Turkey Hunting in zone 464

2 posts in this topic

I know this is a stretch but I am hoping there is a kind soul out there. My dad and I have applied and recieved a turkey license for the first weekend in May. The problem is that the land we have been hunting on in the past was purchased by another party who are hunters. Long story short we are in need of someplace to go hunting for long beards. If you know of anybody in the 464 zone that wouldn't mind if some safe and honest hunters spend a couple of hours looking for turkeys please let me know. Again I know this is a long shot but I thought I might as well ask. Thanks guys and good luck with Turkey Season.

Cobb:

First off, welcome to the site, glad to have you! I hope you share your turkey hunting experiences this spring, as we always like to hear from as many as possible.

As for your hunt, don't act so glum! Also, I wouldn't rely on the good nature of others to make your hunt. Even if somebody lets you on in this manner, who knows what quality of hunting you'll be getting into.

We're all busy in this day and age, but don't chance your hunt. Get out there and spend some early mornings (sunrise and just after) driving around the turkey range. Get a plat book and find some farmers with good chunks of land where you're seeing birds. Esp. in this part of the county, birds are quite visible this time of year from the roads. Once you find one of the bigger flocks, concentrate on that general area and the surrounding 1000 or more acres.

The birds are in their winter flocks still, but will be breaking up quite soon. They'll redistribute to many adjacent areas that you're seeing them now, so it's a good time to get a feel for general areas.

Spend some time on a Saturday morning with your dad driving around and have the plat book with you. Knock on doors, get permission where you can, and be confident that wherever you'll hunt this spring is more likely to have turkeys.

If you do get some good tracts of land, keep an eye on the birds as your season draws nearer. Scouting just before your season is the best method to making sure the birds are still using the area regularly. Freshest information is best here.

Good luck, and let us know how you do!

Joel

      I know the lakes are open and that means some the first open water fishing spots are producing. Any one out there catching em yet? I will be riggin the ultra light up today so I can stop on my way home from work.
