Just looking for advice from someone. Me and a couple friends will be turkey hunting for the first time this season. I was just curious if anyone had suggestions on WMAs to hunt at for turkey. We've been hunting at sherburne for deer/hog, but doubtful on the turkey population there from what…

Bayoubow, Clear Creek WMA has a good turkey population and I have had a lot of fun on that place. It does get hunted hard but you can find gobblers all over that area. We have camped out and enjoyed our hunting there in past years. Walk the logging roads looking for sign and listening. Good luck!

Only 5 weeks away and getting ready for what I hope to be a very good turkey season. The winter storm last week destroyed a lot of my woods. The ice storm dropped trees down all over the place and we are spending time just clearing roads and making sure everything is ok. I hope the wildlife came…

Made a turkey hunt last week to Caldwell county Texas which is near San Antonio. I normally make this trip for the opener, which is April 1st, but work had me bowed up and had to push this trip back to this past weekend. Turkeys were not very active and never heard a gobbler on the roost. Riding…

Turkey season so far has been fun, I have worked several gobblers and called in several hens over the first week of the season. On Sunday 4/11 I was able to close the deal on a nice gobbler. At daybreak I waited for the birds to wake up and start singing. I did not hear a gobbler, so I eased down…

Good luck!! Keep us posted on how it goes. I'm interested to hear if things are any better over there. You're right, it used to be full of turkeys but has been awful the past few years.

I’ve been spending the last few weeks in the woods getting ready for Turkey season and checking on the deer herd. Bucks have started dropping their antlers the last few weeks. I am also hitting the racoon population hard to try and help the turkeys nesting within the next month or so.…

Has anyone had any luck with the Clear Creek WMA Turkey Draw? I got drawn this year, and have never been down there and was seeing if anyone out there had any tips on locations of birds in the past or anything about the layout of the land. Anything is appreciated. Thanks guys.

Made a trip to central Texas With my buddy who was not able to get on a thunder chicken during our first trip. We were able to tag team on a bird who came up with a friend. He was able to double up on the pair-happened too fast for me to video so only could watch. 10.5 beards and 1.25/1.12 spurs.…

This was my second trip of the 2019 Texas spring turkey season. This trip I would be down in Zavala county chasing big Rio Gobblers in that south Texas brush country. I had two tags left to fill and I would be hunting a huge ranch which had a solid turkey population. I have hunted this ranch for…

I just completed my first of two spring turkey hunting trips to Texas this past weekend just east of San Antonio in Guadalupe County which is a 4 gobbler tag county.
I arrived in the afternoon on Thursday and the weather was perfect. 70 degrees, sunny and very light breeze. I headed out to a…

Great story Chris, I enjoyed a quick afternoon turkey hunt Thursday also. I was in Sonora out scouting for the afternoon and made a few calls and had this big 3 year old run in. The weather change stopped our turkey opportunities Saturday also. We did get a few hogs to add to our trip.

The youth turkey season is always a great chance to get an early jump on one of my favorite pass times and a cherished opportunity for some father/son bonding time. Sam has been hunting with me chasing the elusive gobbler for several years now. We have had many close encounters, but something has…

Brought my son on his 1st official turkey hunt and we weren't in the ground blind 20 minutes and had one gobble within a hundred yards of us. I grabbed my trusty Flextone thunder yelper and let out 2 loud series of hen calls before they come out the roost. Both times he gobbled but after the…

Had a great hunt in Texas last week with my longtime friend Eric. We got on the birds quick and the action was fast and furious. We were able to get 8 birds over the course of our hunt with 5 of those on the first afternoon. Most of the longbeards were coming in 2-4 at a time which allowed us to…

That sounds like an amazing hunt. Were you guys hunting on private land? Or was this an outfitter you were hunting with? I got to make a Texas hunt years ago and was amazed at the number of birds. I have been itching to get back to Texas to hunt them again.

Poor Turkey season in the NW La parishes again!?
Very earlier spring and mild winter proved to be disaster for our Turkey season. The very very late opening of season is also a major factor in the poor results that we experienced again this year. Also a very noticeable increase in the coyote…

Cool pic of turkeys in flight from my buddy in Texas. Should be a good spring hunt.

Great first kill experience! I was alone on a friends property and decided to make a mid day hunt. I had spooked a bird after a long wait from a morning gobble on the opener. He walked right up on a buddy and me without a peep. So Saturday at noon I went back to same spot, found a better vantage…
