Re: Turkeys in 5C
I started hunting turkeys in the northwest corner of 5C in 2009. My first day out, I had three birds gobbling in the little area I have to hunt. Each year it's been less and less activity. The last shot opportunity I had was at a jake a couple of years ago first thing on the first morning, and I figured I'd try to hold out for a longbeard. I haven't had a turkey in front of my shotgun since, and I didn't even hear a single gobble last spring, nor see any hens.
Love hunting them, but there's not many around to hunt. Public land makes me really sketchy....just always hear about how many hunters there are and while there's room to roam, I'm not sure how much walking/calling one can do if there's a guy yelping behind every other tree.
