Default Spring Turkey

Spring turkey opens on Saturday! I'm a new addict, started last year. If you have not hunted turkeys, try it this year, absolute blast. I'll be missing the first few days. Post pics of your Toms!

Question

I got my first spring tag ever. I might even take it seriously . In the past I've aways got a fall tag in case one got dumb while I was out elk scouting. But I've never really tried to hunt one.

Funny you say this...I had about 30 turkey's fly into my elk hunting zone last year. It was just starting to get dark and I was considering heading back to the truck, then the helicopter sounds started. They were breaking branches in the trees trying to land! It was pretty cool to watch.

So, Last night my wife says "You should go hunting tomorrow"; Gone! Had a lonely hen come in and that was the only turkey I saw today. However, 27 elk at different times from 50" to 150 yds. Tried very hard to imagine antlers.

Corbet you should go. If the woods hold elk/deer there are turkey. If you can find them. Spring turkey calling is like bugling elk. You will have ball and can hunt the same area you hunt elk. They like moving water and follow the melting snowline eating the tiny green shoots as the snow melts back.

Nice, I got out last week on Thursday. Saw nothing but hens. Could not get the Toms to show themselves despite long conversations. Probably take the boy once this weekend but probably not much chance with him (chatterbox)

Talked my elk hunting "brother" into his first Turkey hunt. We were officially scouting elk territory for this fall. Just happened to have Ghillie suits, a shotgun, and turkey calls with us. He is hooked. Uncle Ben, know this guy?
