New to turkey hunting

Hi I been into deer hunting my whole life , I recently moved and have 15 acres of land and have seen Turkey in my yard , and 3 times on my trail cams , at least 5 at a time , been living here for about 2 months now , is that enough evidence that the land is good enough to turkey hunt on it ? I realy wNna get into turkey hunting and would be great if I could just go behind my house on my own land

Any place there are turkeys is a good place to hunt them if you are following all of the game laws such as not baiting them and not shoot in a safety zone etc.

However, I may case I see turkeys in certain place during the summer but never see tracks there in the winter snow. In the spring you should be able to hear the gobblers in the morning and the evening at least.

Welcome! Start listening for them(gobbles) in the AM and PM starting in the end of March and thru April. This will give you an ok idea of what's in the area. Goodluck! I got my first long beard last year and now I'm hooked for life!

It does appear to be a life time thing...I got my first Spring gobbler in 1972 the first year I moved here and have hunted them ever Spring since including 5 other states. It seems to be more fun every year and I can't wait until this spring. Only about 110 days away.

Hello and welcome Good luck with your spring gobbler.

Listen, or your tongue will make you deaf.

"When a pine needle falls in the forest, the eagle sees it, the deer hears it, and the bear smells it."
