Turkey Hunting Whether it's spring or fall doesn't matter to this bunch. Great tips on calling, bustin flocks, using blinds and more.

Default Sad Story

On opening day of spring turkey season I ran two guys off after I could hear their shots. Each guy shot 3 times in rapid succession. I can not imagine that they could have aimed at the toms only. I was unable to check the property everyday though. I found a blind a week later with a lot of used shells on the ground. It was not there when I ran them off the week before. They must have been shooting hens because out of a flock of 13-17 birds I've only see 3 in the months since.

Not to mention that they do not even have permission to hunt on this private property! Recently I've posted no hunting/trespassing signs all around the property at the request of the landowner. Is there anything else I can do?

I live in central Oklahoma. This is on private land so there is not a lot of traffic that goes by. The land owner doesn’t go out there much, I guess just to check on cattle or plow.

I just want to make sure that there would be something to get them on. I worry these yahoos will be out there this deer season. With the no trespassing signs posted I could get them on that alone right?

Depends on what Oklahomas trespassing laws are. Find out & post it accordingly. Best of luck.

I'm not sure what OK trespassing laws are but Missouri has the purple paint law. Any Land posted with a certain color of purple paint is considered felony trespassing if caught.

Call the DNR and report them as poachers.
