How does a guy go about finding turkeys? I have a great spot but its just a ways from my house that I found on accident and would like a spot closer. I hear there are turkeys where I want to go I just don't really know what to look for.

If you can find a turkey distribution map, they live in a wide variety of terrain from river bottoms, agriculture, to the mountains. A phone call to the fish and game could be a potential starter. Talk to a few locals generally when turkeys are around everyone knows about them, especially if they are nuisance town birds.

Look for Roost, Water, Feed. I look for open meadows, or small grassy areas out of the trees for strutting/warmth of the sun.

Turkeys are smart, but remember they're still a chicken.

Good Luck!
