I got drawn for the hunt this weekend. I know the place is pretty well covered up with birds, but any tips or tricks would be appreciated. I'm not asking for secret honey holes, just if anyone has had success out there this year and how the hunting went.

I know you didnt ask for honey holes but I didnt get dawn. Heck I didnt even put in but I do know where there WAS a whole gob of em back in deer season. I will PM directions so I dont tick anybody off.

I have hunted there 3 times, and been fortunate every time to tag a longbeard. The first year I simply drove in and found a logging road where no one was parked and walked 300 yards and listened.

There are birds everywhere, literally everywhere. I have had most of my success on the south side along the lake, I like it over there because the chances of someone else coming in on you is cut down by the lake border.

I would be careful about driving and locating as lots of folks do that, and the birds get pretty savvy to that tactic fairly quickly.

Hope that helps, and have a great time. It is managed unbelievably well, and there are more turkeys there then anywhere I have ever hunted.

I was covered up with birds, but the gobbler I started out after went straight to the bottom of the hollow with the hens the moment they hit the ground, which just happened to be the exact opposite direction from me. I had a chance at some jakes, but I'll save them for Saturday. It was an absolutely beautiful morning with gobbling up through 10:30, but when I signed out around 11:45, only 2 birds had been checked. Oh well, I'll be after it again in the AM.
