Haven't been scouting yet, but I plan on going very soon (this weekend or next). I have some WIHA land in NE KS picked out and I'm ready to go.

Default Scouting

The spot I hunt I have an area on it that I set up a feeder and a cam to see what is there. The turkeys don't usually start to show up till around the end of march. They winter a couple farms over. So hopefully in the next couple of weeks I will start to get some pics.

OK, I have to share this with you guys


I have lived on the same 15 acres for 18 years now, never once did I see a turkey on my place.

Part of the reason is, it's kinda like a rectangular parcel, and the back long side is bordered by a year round creek that follows a highway, and the front is not far from a county road.

Also, the property was burned in a large fire right before we bought it, so there is a bit of a shortage of ideal roost trees, most of them are right close to my house and my workshop

I got a call from my wife at work, and she told me a "parade" of nine turkeys walked right in front of her car when she was sitting in it, in our driveway.

She told me their heads were a "really bright red", so I knew there must have been some gobblers in the flock.

Well, she came into town (30 miles), and picked up my son from school, and we all had a quick dinner. Then, my son and I jammed home as quick as we could, so I could maybe see the birds, or get some video.

Unfortunately, when I drove up to the house at the top of the driveway, there they were! They all busted and flew when they saw my car, and I watched them sail down the hill and across the creek, on the nearest neighbors place

I got my mouth call, and started cutting and yelping off my back deck, and I had 4 different gobblers hitting me back. My son and I sat back and listened to them gobble until they finally went to roost

Only 9 days left until opening morning, and now I am SERIOUSLY fired up! I am taking today's experience as a sign of good things to come

Best of Luck,
Jeff

Yeah, I don't scout much in advance. I've been hunting a family farm for 20+ years and know the turkey patterns pretty well. I still get skunked sometimes but that's all part of the experience. My father did ride behind my house this past week and saw a group of toms so the coyote I heard this winter didn't get all of them.
