    Alright guys I did some scouting, and heres what I got. There's a couple different spots that im thinking about. I found some turkey crap at a spot on the edge of our property its a little dense in there, but not terrible. Next is this open area down in a valley with dense growth on both hills, but its open and I can see pretty good, and another spot is another open area looking down on the place I just described. I went back to get some lunch, then when a get back I see a hen putting around in a dense area on a deer path. Where would you guys sit?

    I by no means have turkeys figured out but I have always had my best luck hunting the edges of green fields.

      Any chance you can set up in the morning or evening and listen for some gobbles? That would be your best bet/indication as to where you should set up. I also like to just sit out at night and see where they may be headed to roost. Its getting a little later in the season, so you might have a chance of getting a lonely gobbler since most of the hens are on the nest right now. I would try sneaking through the dense stuff and calling every few hundred yards to see if you can get a active one to run your way.

        Do you know how to "roost" a turkey? This has always worked for me. Hope this helps.

          Be there on a high spot or hilltop just before dawn and listen for gobbling. If you can use an owl hooter that is the best time for a good "who cooks for you who cooks for you aaaawwwwwwwlll. If you can kind of roll the last few notes that really helps to get a tom gobbling early in the am. This works best on calm clear mornings. If windy makes it harder to hear and if weather is bad birds usually don't gobble much. If you loacate a bird while it's still pretty dark you can sneak to within 100 yd or less and set up. Wait until he flys down. you can tell by the sound of wings flapping if you are close or the sound of his gobbling will sound alittle different after he is on the grouns. I covered where to set up earlier.

            Keep in mind because of fear of predators birds like to fly down in an open place like a meadow.
