This will be my first year for turkey hunting. I can't wait to get back into the woods. Anybody have some pointers for a rookie turkey hunter?

Do your homework. Know what load patterns best in your gun. Know what your max. distance is. Camo - Head to toe. Decoy's, I use them, some people don't. Practice your calling. Scout, than scout some more. Expect the unexpected. The darn birds will teach you something new every time you hunt 'em. But the most imortant thing to learn is patience.

Watercop, finding the roost is the key. With snow on the ground you can backtrack their tracks to the tree. At the base of the tree there probably will be lots of droppings on the ground. The J shaped droppings are from Jake or Tom. Hen droppings look kind of shaped like popcorn. If you find a trail they are using every day you might get lucky and not even have to call!
