First of all, welcome to the forum. The best advice I've ever had is, "Hunt where the turkeys are." The best equipment in the world and all the knowledge you can accumulate, won't do you any good if there are no turkeys where you're hunting.
There should be a local chapter of the NWTF close to where you are or you can look up a Regional Director with the NWTF, either through their site http://www.nwtf.org
or in their magazine, and call him to ask about a local chapter. He may also be able to help you out by referring you to some good hunters in your area. Most turkey hunters like to be of help. They may not show you their "honey hole" but they will usually be glad to give advice.
I'd also recommend that you subscribe to "Turkey and Turkey Hunting"
magazine, if you're not already a subscriber. There are several good turkey hunting television programs. I especially like "Get in the Game". It's not strictly about hunting but also covers a lot of other aspects of hunting and conservation.
Lastly, I offer a free no obligation service, "The Shooting System", to shooters and hunters at my site http://www.allaboutshooting.com
That's mainly about particular shotguns, choke tubes, shotshells and how they pattern. I shoot all/most and can usually be of help with questions related to what will pattern best with your particular gun, etc.
If I can be of any help to you, please do not hesitate to let me know and I'll do all that I can to be of assistance.
