    As the season comes to a close soon, to those who hunted the public land in the Huron-Manistee forest area what were your thoughts on overall bird numbers and hunting pressure this year?

    Looks like it’s going to hit some high temps in my area for the opener, 72-75 degrees. The past few years it’s been cool/cold for the opener and I don’t think I’ve ever heard how warm weather affects birds or if you should change your tactics? Any tips for this unusual Michigan weather scenario?

    I am a non resident from Texas looking for areas to turkey hunt, public or private, during the last week of the season in southwest Michigan. I got drawn for zone ZF june1-7 (timed it out with my cousin's wedding). Any recomendations?

    Just recently moved to Michigan and am looking to get into hunting. I've always enjoyed the outdoors and hiking and fishing, but didn't grow up in a hunting/shooting family, so am a beginner in my mid-20's. Excited to learn more and get out there! I've been reading a lot about Michigan's...

    Ok guys and gals. I would love to know your thoughts on the week long turkey season in most LP areas. Here's why. When we apply for specific hunts we are only allowed to choose about a 1 week time frame. Many times we apply to hunt in January or February and have to look 4 months in advance...

    Hey All! This may be a shot in the dark but I'm looking to shoot and harvest a fall turkey in UNIT YY (Private Land Only.) I understand that this combined unit/private land only unit has been implemented to press and regulate turkeys off of private property and onto public land. That being...

    Didn't start hunting turkeys until I turned 60. And in the last eleven years I've only managed to shoot five toms. This was my biggest one. Shot it using a 12 ga. magnum load of #5's at a range of 15 yards. Haven't been out yet this year; I'm still fishing.

    Unfortunately opening weekend was big swing and a miss on the public land I hunt in southwest michigan. Had a solid morning yesterday and called in two decent sized toms from deep tinder into shooting range in the field edge I was set up on. My hen decoy actually seemed to spook and flush them...

    I am unsure if I am breaking a rule by mentioning a specific brand, so I do apologize ahead of time. I was out this morning for the opener and I was in blind ready and 10 minutes later first gobbles. I have a Avian hen and bought recently a funky chicken turkey decoy. This decoy is more head...

    I hunted turkey once before on a last min decision a couple years back. Went to a buddy’s house that doesn’t hunt turkey but has the property and definitely the birds. It was a very easy, simple, sit for 30 mins and beard down. Haven’t hunted turkey since (just too busy). This year I can finally...

    Hello Everyone, Out of state resident hunter here who was wondering if I should still expect to receive my turkey tags via mail in a timely matter with this corona outbreak going on. From what I know any kill tag has to be delivered by "snail mail" and no electronic printout is available. Just...

    Hello everyine, I was wondering what the chances are for a non-resident to recieve tags for a limited license Southern Lower Penninsula turkey hunt. Is it common to have left over tags for Zone ZF specifically or are they difficult to obtain? It's a shame public land hunts in the southern...

    Hey fellow sportsmen. I am doing my first hunt of any kind and could use a leg up if somebody is so kind. I spent the day today (Monday) on public land that I had previously scouted and I found all of the signs - scratchings, droppings, dusting bowl, feathers - and I think I've figured out his...

    Some turkeys hunts have just an incredible story to them. Every one of them unique in they're own way. My pa in-law last season shot twice at a gobbler before connecting. The "look" on the turkeys face is too funny, almost like he dropped his head and tucked his shoulders after the first shot...

    I have been using a dot sight made by Leapers/UTG in Livonia, MI for the past 3 season. It is their 6" T-Dot reticle (SCP-TDTDQ item#) which has performed above and beyond my expectations. This year I decided to try something new from them, a mini reflex dot sight. It looks great on the gun and...

    Have you ever tried it? On this hunt we were on birds for 4 days and they kept giving us the slip. On the 4th day we made our own decoy by using a turkey fan, adhered it to a stick and stuck it in the ground. We sat on the bank of a creek in the weeds. Once these gobblers saw that fan flappin'...
