DIY Turkey Maps

Dale custom marks each map with at least 4 good turkey hunting areas on public land. You'll save many scouting days and hundreds in fuel trying to find birds. The map does not include any other services.

Hunt Methods

There's nothing better than calling in a big gobbler. Another reason for our high success rate is that we pattern turkey movements. We get a lot of birds by using blinds at feeding areas and strutting zones. By knowing these areas well our hunters consistently kill birds all season.

Hunting Areas

Private Ranches:  We lease numerous properties. The guides know these properties and the turkey movements extremely well. The most successful hunting method is using blinds at feeding and strutting areas.

Mountain Hunts:  Are done in mountain hotspots where there are good numbers of birds. The most successful hunting method is calling, hunters cover ground to locate toms that will call. These hunts require more hiking and are best suited to hunters wanting to cover ground and call.

Trophy Quality

Merriam�s have fantastic color that compliments any trophy room. Mature toms weigh 15 to 20 pounds with 7" to 10" beards, and �� to 1� spurs. The largest we've taken weighed 24 pounds, had 11 1/4" beard and 1 7/8" spurs. Bearded hens are fairly common and may be taken for a mount, beards on hens have measured from 3 to 8 inches.

Shot Opportunity

Guided hunt shot opportunity is over 300%, success for two birds is usually 150% to 200%, unguided hunters are about half as successful. Shot distances vary from 5 to 40+ yards. Pattern your shotgun on Turkey Targets in advance to determine your maximum effective range.

Spring is good until about May 20. The entire fall season is excellent.

Youth Season:  Open April 7-8 for two bearded turkeys.
