Scouting public land well will give you the edge for turkey hunting this season, so learn a few tips from the pros.
It is all about taking the time to study maps of your targeted public land areas. Look for what kind of habitat turkey thrive in, from water sources, roosting locations of timber, and good areas of ground cover for nesting hens.
Once you map out a few likely areas based on these three needs then it is time to hit the ground and verify there is good turkey sign. Once you have some good locations marked out on your maps, you are in business.
With the scouting work done you now have an advantage and will be able to hit the ground earlier and beat any competition who have not been as thorough as you in scouting beforehand.
