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

      Nice area to get the yak out in.  One of the smallies wanted to share lunch with me.

      Fished spring park today, tried walleye early with no luck.  Switched to bass and managed to find a few in about 10 feet over weeds.  Caught most of them on a chatterbait

      Hello, I am a young angler looking for PONDS I live in the metro area close to Plymouth. I am mostly a bass angler but love some big crappie and gills. I have lots of ponds I know of and can trade spots, matter of fact I know a pond in the metro that is around 10 acres and stocked with a lot of YES I SAID TROUT and it is not courthouse. I will trade you spots and I love private ponds and would love to get access to some small private lakes or ponds. I am a catch and release angler just looking for some pond bass. I will trade spots with you just message me.

      If you can bring your boat to shagawa which is close my friends up there are doing very well on eyes lots of small ones but pletty of eaters. Burntside is a not the easiest walleye lake but it is a night bite. If you like pout you can get some all summer long there. I like to fish near the little finger bays that have mud bottoms.
