Default Turkey hunting plans for 2024

What's everyone plans for this year? I'm going to WV for opening week for a quick 4-day hunt. Then head back to Ohio for the start of their season. If I still have a tag for WV, I'll head back down to try to fill it. I close friend of mine, we had planned on turkey hunt in KY this year. Both of us had different places lined up to hunt and we ended up not being able to hunt the properties. We've been searching for some private ground, but no luck on that with it being this late in the year! Maybe next year. Good luck to all this year! Shoot straight and be careful!!

Wisconsin has 6 seasons, each a week long. I'm carrying a gun the first and 4th season, and calling for others the 2nd and 5th. Gonna be a busy spring.

I don't even know if I'll go this year.

Really not feeling it right now.

Had two gobblers strutting in the back field two nights ago though

You still have a few weeks to think about it, maybe you'll feel like it later on!

I havenít seen any birds to speak of. I did see a couple on some private land and thatís been it. But, I will most likely hunt the same areas I have been for the last couple of years. They birds have been scarce last year and hopefully they will be coming around after this storm goes threw. Our season doesnít start until April 29th anyway..

Planning to hunt on my own property in west central PA, as usual. Bird numbers have been steadily declining over the past couple of years. I didn't even bother with buying a second tag this year. I do have some trail camera footage of a couple of birds in one of last fall's foodplots.

Thought I might try some different ammo this year. I have been using Winchester Long Beard XR in 12 GA 3-1/2" with 2 oz of #5 shot for a few years now. I recently bought a couple of boxes of Federal 3RD Degree in 12 GA 3-1/2" which includes 2 oz of #5 (40%) & #6 (20%) shot lead plus #7 (40%) shot TSS. Seems to pattern okay in my Tri-Star Hunter Mag O/U with 26" barrels and a pair of Carlson's .665" ported choke tubes.

Here's a target that was shot off-hand at about 35 yards.

I'm done turkey hunting for 2024! My Ohio season was short lived, shot a 2 year old tom on the first day! I feel very fortunate to have filled this tag! Here in Ohio, I hunt with a friend of mine, he recently lost one of the two properties that he has to hunt. With only one place to hunt, we felt that it might be a tough year in the turkey woods. My friend filled his tag right of the bat. By 7:00 am he was done! We didn't hear or see anything until around 10:00 when a tom responded to us calling. As of today, we haven't had a mature tom on camera since the first day of season! I'm sure there's more around, just haven't seen any. Good luck to the ones that are out in the turkey woods!
