I can’t help you but the number one thing you need to do is make sure you identify your target and enjoy the spring woods. Good luck!
bucksbeware said:I want to do a spring gobbler hunt this year, I have never hunted turkeys before so I was planning to hire a guide/go to an outfitter, but something came up and I won’t have the $ to do that. Instead I’m hoping to be able to plan a public land hunt. Anyone know of any good public lands in South East, Central or North East PA for turkey hunting? Keep in mind that I don’t have any experience hunting turkey, so general turkey hunting tips will be much appreciated as well.
I haven't hunted in the general areas you mentioned, but I can tell you that, starting from scratch as you are, THE biggest factor in your success will likely be how much time you can put into scouting. You may luck out and show up at a new spot & find turkeys all over the place, but by scouting before the season, you can know where those turkeys like to spend their time. For a newbie, that knowledge is more than half the battle, IMO.bucksbeware said:Keep in mind that I don’t have any experience hunting turkey, so general turkey hunting tips will be much appreciated as well.
Pattern you gun, know your range and stick to it when hunting.Jason Zimmerman said:Also play with different calls now and get a little practice in.
