I am thinking about getting an OTC tag and chasing some turkeys this spring. Got a few areas in mind not too far from Denver. Curious if any of the locals wanted to join up and go after some birds?

Sounds good. When it gets a little closer to the opener, we will have to plan it out.

Never been turkey hunting before, but I just picked up a new shotgun and some calls and decoys and an OTC tag for the spring season....then realized I had no idea where to go and none of my local Denver friends hunt Turkey.... So yeah I wouldn't mind.

I plan on being parked and ready to hike in by first daylight, if not sooner.

Where are you planning to go? I would love to go but apparently Uncle Sam didn't take enough of my money throughout the year so I had to pay $800 in taxes so not sure what my gas situation will look like this weekend, but if it is close enough I will be down.

Let me check with the wife see what we have going on Nova. I may join you. Are you bowhunting Turkeys? Got Blind?

Yeah and what zen said where you thinking about going? I would do an OTC also.

How did you guys do?
I did not make it down south this weekend so Liv2HntBigBullz and I headed up and while we did not find any birds on public there was pretty good sign - just not talking much.
On the way back down, we stumbled on a group of almost 40 birds with 7-8 strutters in the middle of the road which was pretty fun to watch.
Heading down to the Bosque on Wednesday thru Sunday so hopefully we get into them there.

I've got Friday off this week so I am going to head south and keep my fingers crossed to run across a gobbler. A Friend of mine recommended Garfield Creek SWA, he grew up in that area and said that he always saw birds there so if I don't get anything Friday I might try to find out how far of a drive it is to Garfield Creek SWA and try to swing that on Sunday.

Did any of you guys have much luck? I'm looking for some areas to hunt with a buddy. We are both in the Denver area. Preferably somewhere within 2 hours of Denver. I found two jakes last year but I had to leave my house at 1AM to get to them while they were still on the roost. 1.5 Hr drive followed by a 2Hr hike. So I'm willing to put in the work.
