Default Out of state turkeys.

I realize deer season is only just opening, but I'm already thinking of this next spring.

I'm thinking I want to take a trip out of state for turkeys this year, where would you folks suggest going? Preferably somewhere where public land hunting might not be too horrible, though I guess I wouldn't mind spending the extra cash through an outfitter.

I plan on going with only the bow, no shotguns.

Your thoughts?

I would look hard at MO. We got the most turkeys in the country and lots of public ground to use. It's a pretty good trip but worth it. Here are the birds me and my frined took this year off of public ground.

Those are definitely some great public land birds, MO. We're lucky to hear a real turkey on public land around here during open season.

Any specific counties you would suggest that might have a greater chance of providing quality/quantity birds?

Consider Tennessee. I see lots of turkeys and have taken turkeys (off private land) for the last three years straight.

What subspecies are you interested in? Wyoming has incredible public land Merriams as well.

I agree MO or KS would be a good choice.

Turkeys period, Rob.

All we've really got on my side of Washington are Merriams, so if i could possibly get something else that would be fantastic, but I'm not picky.
