How many private land acres?

Just curious more than anything but how many private land acres do you have permission to turkey hunt?
Leave it better than you found it.

When he gobbles I assume that is permission. So quite a bit.

I have about 12 farms I have permission to hunt with a total of 1500 acres or so. Many of the farms border one another so over 1000 is one solid block.

I have about 600 acres on 4 farms. They are all prime turkey hunting locations. We normally kill 6 to 10 gobblers off these farms.

In a ~4,000 acre club but only about 10% is decent turkey habitat. Rest is young pine plantation with at least half so thick a turkey would struggle to walk through it. Be a great year if more than 6 or so birds are taken off it.

Also have permission to hunt ~50 acres to adjoins some public land. But the birds LOVE that 50 acres! Good for a bird opening week each year.

Somewhere around 1,500. It hunts a lot smaller than it sounds, however.

Dang y'all got some big tracts. I've got about 750 to myself, which I own, that is more in one block than I've ever had to hunt in my lifetime. It's hard to keep good ground to hunt. When I was 18, had more ground than I could get to...for free. Now, if it weren't for my own place I don't know if I'd even have anywhere to hunt.

I used to drive an hour one way to hunt private land. Nothing around me had turkeys at all. Now 18 years later I've got a better place that's walking distance from my house. Like I said it's about 100 acres but it's good and close

There was no turkeys here 18 years ago. I know a lot of folks have seen a decline but it's been a boom for me

7.5 acres of my own. Only about 4 of it is viable.

Own 212.
Permission on around 2000

Hardly ever hunt private though. You need to be able to roam miles to find a gobbler here anymore.
