turkey scout

I have been turkey hunting once in my life about eight years ago and I did not shoot a turkey. I live about 20 mins from the green swamp and decided that it's about time I got in on the action. Johnny and I went out to get the lay of the land yesterday. It was more to just get our bearings than to actually scout. We found the check station and walked several miles out into the swamp. We didn't find any turkeys or what you would consider good turkey areas but it helped take away some of the intimidating factor of a 50k acre area. We have a much better idea of what we are up against. I don't expect a lot but it will be nice to add another hunting season to the year.
