This will be my first year turkey hunting. Does anyone have any suggestions on where to start scouting? I'm from Lancaster PA.

If you have mind to hunt Lancaster, the area around Octararo lake holds a few birds, and is open to public hunting. It gets hammered pretty hard though, so expect company.

We lucked out and got a decent sized jake out of the woods on the west side of the lake on the opener last year. We had scouted this bird for several days just prior to the opener, so we knew pretty much exactly where to get him. We had hunters all around us though, but we got setup well before the rest of them, and I guess my calling was just better than there's.
