At the Ranch: How to Plan a Turkey Hunt
If you’ve never turkey hunted or are just getting into it, planning a hunt may seem intimidating. But we’re here to help! The first thing you want to think about when planning a turkey hunt is where you actually want to hunt at. Depending where you live, you may need to hunt out of state, like I do. Jumping online and doing a little research looking into certain state’s turkey populations is a great start. You want to be hunting somewhere where you have a good chance at getting a turkey. After determining a state, double check to ensure that state provides over the counter tags. If they don’t, you may need to apply early.
Once you’ve determined where you want to hunt, you’ll need to figure out actual spots to hunt within the state. Utilizing resources online such as a state’s game and fish website can help you choose different public or private land. Lastly, when it comes to planning a turkey hunt, you’ll need to ask yourself what other things you might need. Common items are decoys, a blind, etc.
