Sorry its took me so long to respond, I've been down south hunting. We have two WMA in northwest Alabama that have respectable bird populations at both. Freedom hills in Colbert Co. and Waterloo in Lauderdale Co. I hunt mostly Colbert. The best turkey hunting for the last two years has been on the old part or the management area. There are plenty of green fields and hardwoods on many of the truck trails near and around the check in station. My best results have come from the new birding trails they have. They were made for bird watchers I guess but the turkeys like them to. Another area down to the south of us in Marion Co. is Sam R Murphy WMA and it is one of the best for birds, although in the last year they have cut a lot of timber, more than usual I think. You can still find birds in the bottoms in the timber left in the stream lanes. It also opens up with the rest of the southern region of the state on the 15th of March. It also gets a lot of pressure until our season starts April 1st. but after that in falls off dramatically so I would recommend it around the second week in April. Like a lot of places the pressure is calculated by what the birds are doing. If there not gobbling than most of these places die after 8 or 9 in the morning with hunting times through 1pm now you can find you may have the woods all to your self if you stick it out, except for me, ill be there from daylight till closing.
Well good luck and hope this helps some.
P.S. leave some for me...
