Fall Turkey Scouting

587 Views 4 Replies 4 Participants Last post by  GeoLoon
I have been out doing some scouting for fall turkeys, and I must say, it's certainly seems a bit more difficult to find birds in the fall versus the spring. I've been scouting public land and have only found minimal sign, although the nut trees seem to be producing very well. Areas where I find plenty of sign in the spring are showing no signs of birds now. Most of my public land scouting has been low, not on mountain tops. After stomping the woods for an hour or so, I will make a lap around the local farm lands and have yet to see a bird in the fields.

Is anyone else experiencing the same as I, or am I looking in the wrong areas for fall birds. As this is only my second season of fall turkey hunting, I am inexperienced, and some tips would be greatly appreciated. Thanks.

I was out today and spent about two hours scouting the area I plan to hunt opening day. I did find feathers, droppings (both hen and gobbler), and an area that looks like someone went through it with a leaf blower. Hopes are definitely higher than when I made my original post early this morning.

Thanks for your replies guys, much appreciated.
