Spring Turkey Hunting Plans....Started in September
« on: January 22, 2021, 11:56:25 PM »
I know I'm not completely alone....just read the thread about scouting easterns now. Good advice. I keep cameras up year round.

Might be more alone in my obsession to hunt turkeys around the country but not. There are a few on here in the same pursuit. 78 more sleeps until my season starts on the east coast.... 83 until the Washington opener... 71 sleeps until the WA-Youth opener....

I "sat" last season out. Canceled hunts in 7 states and only hunted 2. This year not going to happen. The goal is 10 states ... realistically 6.

Gonna take out a second season hunter, make sure he's hooked. Goal is to take out at least one new hunter and/or youth hunter as well.

I'm excited for Spring turkey '21.... are you?

Probably my post that got you started..
But really what fired my cap was another posting pics of turkeys in their back property.
.but, yeah..
This time of year the survivors are establishing dominance.

I am prepping for my sons WA youth season now and thinking about my own WA hunt if I can get the time off of work.  I'll probably only hunt WA again this year.  My time to hunt other states will probably come after my youngest is no longer at home.
