WDNR website is a good source for hunting locations as are the county sites. Fall turkey hunting is challenging and most of that challenge is finding the birds. Even if I gave the exact location of the last turkeys I saw in unit 3 when you got there, most likely you would find no turkeys or sign that they had ever been there. Have faith, there are a lot of turkeys in unit 3 on public lands.

When food is easily available turkeys just peck it up and do not scratch much if at all. Unless the ground is very soft turkeys rarely leave visible tracks. Feathers is a good sign, these birds were probably having some disagreements and they are easier to call in. The problem with feathers is knowing how long ago that disagreement happened.
Look for droppings while you are hunting. These indicate the turkeys were feeding and you can learn to judge the timeframe they were there.
All that being said I cover a lot of ground in the fall to find turkeys. Dogs are legal in WI so if you have a bird dog you might want to consider taking it with you to help find promising areas.
