I spent TONZ of time in the bush this season. We found a couple birds but they were in Urban non hunting areas. Where should we go next year. We went to Middle canyon, Oak City, Hobble Creek, Payson, Spanish Fork. Maybe go south? I think that I should have come across alot more birds for the amount of time I spent out there. The link below is some footage of my time out there.

I enjoyed the video! Thank you so much for putting that together. It was fun to ride along with you and your boys.

I don't know how to say it nice, so I'll just say it, you could use some work on your calling.
I didn't want to come across as rude, so I had originally chosen not to reply here. The truth is I agree with this. I would also recommend buying one of these:


Your boy gave you a good suggestion when he told you to stalk that hen. I learned the sounds hens make by hanging around with groups of hens. They almost never hammer down like you were doing to that first tom. The hens I have watched always make subtle little clucks and purrs.

I don't know that you need to find new areas. You were into birds. That's all a guy can ask for. Hunting turkeys in Utah is about like hunting elk. You're going to put in some hard work and bringing one in is not always easy.
