Default Turkey Hunting On Windy Days ?

I usually just take the windy days off but this year it looks like the whole first week will be windy.

I hunt an area that is manly forest no feild areas.

If I can't get on one coming off roost what would be best to do?

I have a bottom area that has some thick stuff in it but at the very bottom it is more open with alot of shooting lanes.

I have no clue on there roosting habbits so that is out.

Basiclly would you hunt the bottoms or just drive/walk and call on the high spot of the hills?

Hit the low lands or the back side of the woods where the wind is being broke up a little. Good luck

One good thing about windy days is that turkeys cant pick up on movement like they can on still days. If you spot turkeys you might be able to slip into position to make a shot. Good luck

I'm with bullmoose38.........
Hunt the areas protected from the wind, if you have them roosted you can still hunt the roost area then go to the protected areas, if there are no real protected areas they will be in the woods because thats as protected as they can get.

They will still be heading to feed and strut areas.Try to be there ahead of them and just sit tight and wait.Don't call them.Let them come to you.
