So get in the woods this time of the year and look and listen. Look for signs and listen for gobblers?
There is a look to a turkey woods, but that comes only with experience.
If its tough brush to walk thru and tough to see a turkey, they probably wont be there either because they can't see ther predators or escape easily.
Good to have water close by, but they can usuall find water some way or in the food they eat.
The could roost in anything, thick or thin, but oftern may find a dying tree.
Question- in the sping time in Indiana, what do you think is their main diet? Bugs on ground, flying bugs, seeds, nuts, grass, left over corn in fields. They may eat any of this, but I would think a turkey hunts with the idea of success, so where would he go first for a successful hunt.
Question- I would say find hens and you find gobblers, we are the same way. So does the hen have any specific traits to look for that are different than gobblers?
Question- Roosting- do they roost on the edge of fields or far away from a field or where they eat? Do they like to roost in old woods, meaning limbs high up or newer woods, limbs lower on the trees? The roost alone or in groups?
