Well...today was my first day turkey hunting. While I didnt see, hear, nor smell a bird, it was good to get out in the woods.

Anybody else go today?

To my understanding, you kill as many per day as your permit allows. 3 birds per permit per county.

Can't go until Friday. Have a flock of about 40 hens, 12 jakes and 4 longbeards (separately but within 70 acres) roosting in the right spot-as of last night. Fri-Sat-Sun is hunt-o-rama for me.

Dare I say this on a deer site but I love trukey hunting much more than deer hunting.


I've turkey hunted just about as long I know how to ride a bike. Turkey hunting is my "New Hobby" project for this year. Right now I'm limited to heavily hunted WMA areas so I'm not too optimistic. I certainly hope my luck pans out and I get the passion like you.

I hunted the middle Percy Priest WMA. I'm hoping to hit both the upper and lower b/f the season is over. It's looking pretty unlikely with the weather forecast.

Percy Priest is loaded with Turkey. Flocks upwards of 50 birds in some places. The way I find them is deer hunting. I just remember where they are. THey will stay in the same area as long as there is food there. When they are grouped up like that they are not as smart IMO and you usually can walk up to within 30 yds of them. I am heading out in the next hour, just waiting for it to warm up a bit.

Went this morning and saw a group in a field. try to flank them, but they got off before i could get around them. About 6 birds total, but I can't find the flocks that have been there traditionally. I assume someone got into them on the 7th and they have relocated for a couple of weeks. I always seem to find them again about the end of deer season, when it is safe for them to come out!
