I recently moved to the Jackson area from Middle TN. I'm used to hunting private land where I grew up but was wondering if you guys could give me any insight on good public land for turkeys within an hour or so drive from Jackson. I went to Natchez Trace for the first time this afternoon and saw 2 hens as well as two hunters (which I was surprised to bump into two hunters on 50,000 acres on a Monday!) I'd like a place with a little better odds!

Tn National NWR, Hatchie NWR, Chickasaw state forest near Henderson. Natchez trace has several birds, although Most are in certain spots. If you have a boat, I'd look at Tn national, you will find birds on most of it. For numbers, hunt LBL on the non quota hunts. Good luck
