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

      Thanks for the ice report, Sculpin.  With the weather forecasted for the upcoming week, I'm sure I'll be up there next weekend, hopefully walking out from the northwest side.   van, yeah, I hear you.  I've been up to LOW a few times, and it is very fun to know there's the chance of catching a monster....but driving all that way for a bucket full of 12'' fish?  Not my cup of tea. I'll save the money and buy three dozen T-bones to make it through the winter. I'm sure people who know the lake better than I do have done better on the weekends I'm up there, but the reports at the resort we used were pretty similar.    I like the northwest side on ML because it's where we've been for almost 20 years, but it also has close access to sand, rocks, whatever weeds remain, mud flats, transitions, etc. The only thing we don't have up there is extensive gravel.

      I'm curious to see how this works out. Do you plan to keep the battery warm while not is use on the water?
