    Georgia turkeys

    I just moved to Colorado from Georgia. When people in GA say it's pressured, they mean the WMA's and easy to access areas. If you're willing to hike 2 or 3 miles, there's a lot of unpressured birds all through the national forests. Yes it's less dense but the turkeys are there and the service...

    Colorado backcountry turkeys

    Dan, I might take you up on this offer as well if I don't bag one in the morning! Would love to save some boot rubber and learn from someone else who's already burned theirs!

    The wind is a real factor here. I've had a few days where it just gets too strong to hear anything or for them to hear you. Check the forecast for the area before you go as usually the winds pick up around 10 or 11 from what I've seen. I've hiked about 50 miles all around the areas north of...

Lots of areas at 8 to 10,000 feet which I think is going to be too high for turkeys this early. Any recommendations on areas...

    Colorado backcountry turkeys

    I just moved from GA to Longmont, Colorado and I've been reading up on the turkey scene here. It sounds like there's a lot of pressure most places in the state along the front range. Is there such a thing as backcountry turkey hunting here and if so where would you suggest? I backpack hunt a...
