Where is everyone going this year chasing turkeys? I am starting things off Mar 10-12 in South Florida. From there I will hunt the south Zone opener in Texas. Then I may make a trip up to Oklahoma at a buddies place. During the week I will hunt in Louisiana a time or two at a buddies place. Then I will start my long stretch of Midwestern/Northern states. Will hunt Kansas Apr 25-26, Nebraska 27-29, and Wyoming the 30-2. Its going to be a fun year and if all goes well I will finish my single season slam, all with the 20 gauge and TSS I reload myself.

Next year I plan to hunt some North Eastern States and spend a week or so up there and probably catch Kentucky or Missouri on the way up there. However, the most exciting thing about next year will be going to Mexico to kill a goulds. 2022 I will head back to Mexico to kill an ocellated.

I look forward to hearing where everyone else will be going this year. I wish everyone the best of luck and look forward to seeing success pics.

Mine does not sound near as exciting as your's. If...IF my son has a break in his baseball schedule that happens to fall on a weekend that he is with me, then we will get to go to Pawhuska, OK to do a turkey hunt. Also have a possibility to go to a buddies place in Throckmorton after one of his Saturday games. That's the only thing I don't like about baseball, and the girls soccer. Makes it tough on spring Turkey season.

Oklahoma is a really fun place to hunt. Its looking like I will not be hunting there this year.

Texas and Oklahoma for sure. New Mexico and Missouri..haven't finalized. No Kansas this year with the limit going to 1 bird this year. I really want to harvest another Eastern in TX. Finding private land that has birds that you can hunt is difficult at best.

I have a co-worker here that has several hundred acres in Red River county that they hunt with Eastern birds on it and I have been pestering the crap out of him for 9 years to let me even PAY to hunt a Eastern but still no luck. Lol. If I was his boss I would fire him. Lol


Born to hunt and fish.

I have never killed an eastern in Tx. I have never had the opportunity. I would really enjoy doing so though.

I had land in Red River county that was chock full of Easterns till they harvested the timber. Nothing like hearing a loudmouth gobbler in that timber...it would literally shake the woods.

Yes it will. I grew up hunting in the Georgia swamps. Nothing like being on the edge of a creek and hearing 5-10 sound off down that creek. I enjoy hunting the other subspecies but nothing gobbles like an eastern.

I will go to a ranch owned by an old family friend in Yuma County, CO. He has a little over 10,000 acres with the Republican River flowing through the middle of it. He has a lot of Rio Grande birds on his place. This is a bi-annual family type hunt.

That sounds like a blast. I have heard places in Colorado are slam covered up.
