.... Always try to get out before season opens and listen from different spot to try to locate birds....
That's right. You need to do lots of pre-season scouting. If you scout that WMA heavily pre-season and don't hear any gobbles, then you should hunt somewhere else. Make up a piece of paper with your picture and a little biographical information about you. Add some references. Then go hunting for permission to hunt private property. Don't be afraid to ask, even if the land is posted. Sometimes people post land only because they want to make sure people ask permission.
When [url="http://www.EverydayHunter.com"]"The Everyday Hunter"[/url] isn't hunting, he's thinking about hunting, talking about hunting, dreaming about hunting, writing about hunting, or wishing he were hunting.
