I drive over Lookout Pass about 20 times per year.  About 75% there is a couple of big toms on the shoulder of i90 right before you go into Idaho.  Everytime I see them, I make the comment they are way to high in elevation and it makes no sense

I'm planning a turkey trip to Montana this spring. I've been looking for info on reasonably productive areas, but can't find anything, anywhere as to success rates, etc. Maybe it just isn't available for turkeys like it is for big game, I don't know. I'm going to sign up for GoHunt when I have the cash, but I don't think they have anything for turkeys. Does anyone have an idea where I might look for info on places to plan my hunt? I'm thinking the Custer National Forest or wildlife area around Fort Peck Lake, but that's a pretty big area.

Not sure if you found this map of distribution of turkeys in montana...

Sorry, off I-90 in MT, not I-5.  I shouldn't multitask.
