turkey distance in a day?

3 posts in this topic

Dumb ? but how far do turkeys travel in a day? Seen a couple flocks today in fields in the same section I am hunting. Both only a few parcels from the wma I am hunting. I am heading out tomorrow scouted today for the next 4 days. Did Flush a hen turkey today on my way out. If there is a hen in the imediate area I would think Tom Tom could not be too far right? Also the field I am hunting the DNR decided to do a burn on Yesterday. Scouted Thursday night and was nice Prarie grasses. Today Black is this good or bad?

Generally if you are seeing hens you are in the right spot. If you are seeing Toms on the same section and you have good turkey cover you should be alright.

The DNR did a burn on the piece I was hunting last year... seemed to draw the birds in. The new grass that immediatley was popping up and I think extra bugs made it enticing for them. It was about 2 weeks before my season when they burned it.

Good Luck!

The burn was just Thursday or Friday. I didn't see any tracks on Wednesday. Last night I was doing another quick scout looking exactly where I want to set my decoy etc... Seen a bunch of tracks that weren't there before. I will be hunting it hard tomorrow. Since Wednesday is the last day for me. Thanks

        My buddy and his dad dropped there front end of there pickup in on lake bemidji Saturday luckley they were able to get out with out harm. After all the rain and warm temps hopefully people learn now to stop driving. If you do go out walk not worth the risk. I'm looking at the forcast and after tonight the lows for nights are in the teens so hopefully things may heal up and I can get out a few more times. It's the middle of February I'm not going to be putting things away yet feels like I just got things out!

      We had to ride snowmobiles 30 miles out of the Canadian bush Monday and it was a mess. Filled our Otters with water even with covers strapped on.

      From what I am seeing on the Arnesen webcam, there is not much snow left.  Sleds would need scratchers.  Wheelers maybe a better option until we get more snow and there is none in the forecast.

      Coming up Thursday morning and planning on making the run to the reefs/islands via snowmobile.  Is there any loose snow left on the trail to keep the sleds cool, or would a 4 wheeler be necessary?  Any information from locals there would be very much appreciated.  Thx.
