Of all the game I hunt, my friends seem to really enjoy wild turkey. It is now time to get at it, and the two most important things I do is to remind myself of the habitat they live in and where they roam. Since I have access to four different farms, I scout them out ahead of the season and visit with the landowners to find out where they have seen turkey activity. That has not happened yet this year.
The weather is eastern Nebraska and western Iowa has been miserable to say the least. The cold keeps hanging on and with it comes the humidity. Periodic rain showers and lots of wind have made this one of the wettest springs I have ever seen. Having said this cheery piece of news, there was only one thing to do. Get out of town. So my wife and I headed down to Savannah, Georgia for a little R & R, and to warm up our cold bones. I am a little behind on getting my scouting done, but it is supposed to warm up and clear off this week. Therefore, I will be going farm to farm visiting with binoculars and coffee.
The information below is from the Iowa Department of Natural Resources website, and it is an excellent source of information. Reading all the DNR websites where a person hunts or fishes is a great way to gather information. (http://www.iowadnr.gov/)
