I think it's because of the private land that the turkeys seem to hang in this time of year. I'm heading out Sunday to try my luck

sorry to thread jack but, I seen quite a few turkeys up on Bald Mountain this past deer season..  Can you hunt them up there yet??? 
I kill elk and eat elk, when I'm not, I'm thinking about killing elk and eating elk.

It doesn't matter what you think...

Lol gasman... well rtspring question is if we can get up there yet, i havnt been in that area since last year but ive seen by tieton pond n the bethal unit and towards mud flats n the observatory area n the wenas valley. But ya demon i think ur right on private or game areas like oak creek.

Yea it's been my experience that they are where you can't go yet or on land you can't get access to. Once the areas open they seem to move away from those areas too.
