I put in for LE Wild Turkey for the southern unit. I have seen turkey's out hunting for elk in some places in the southern unit. But I have also never hunted wild turkey. I am not looking for anyone's secret spot as I have a good idea of where to look. But if anyone has any info on where the biggest populations of turkey's are in the southern unit or anywhere else in Utah I would appreciate any tips or pointers as well as like I said I have never hunted them before and even if I don't draw a tag for the LE I am interested in making turkey hunting part of my yearly schedule with general season tags as well. Again any tips for a first timer would be awesome.

It is all going to depend on the snow loads in the hills. When I had my southern tag we went scouting 2 weeks before the opening and the snow was quite low. Come the hunt there wasn't any snow and the turkeys were like high country deer.

It just all depends.

Awesome thanks Critter!

I have a pretty good idea of where to find some birds. But I know it gets a lot of snow. Do they have a predictable mating season or other weird rituals that a prolonged winter would interrupt?

Any advice on where to go for the fall season? I think I am going to head down New Years Eve, first time hunting birds in this type of country.
