I’ve turkey hunted longer than some of you have been alive. Doesn’t make me better or worse, just older and likely more experienced at getting served up an education on a regular basis from the bird we love – and surely opinionated about what I like in a turkey hunting state.
Check it out:
The following 10 states to turkey hunt before you die are my favorites. Wildlife agency spins, heavy-handed statistics and estimated flock populations don’t come into play. Looking back over the years, many are locations I’ve returned to again and again around the country.
What can I say about the Bluegrass State? I’ve got a mock license plate on my office wall that reads: Kentucky Wild Turkey, Beyond Duplication. (I know, it’s an advertisement for something else too.) There’s a reason for that. I’ve hunted all corners of the state since the late 1990s. I’ll be there again this spring. It never gets old.
