Thanks everyone. It was a jake, but I was happy to get him. Have not been out a second time, but may try again this weekend. Seems to be a lot of birds in our woods this year.

Odd that. Lots of birds, but few deer sighting this year. You think the birds are faster than the coyotes?
The only real difference between a good tracker and a bad tracker is observation. All the same data is present for both. The rest is understanding what you are seeing.

I think it helps that turkeys sleep in trees at night. My situation is kind of unique in that about 15 years ago all the woods around my 40 acres were cut for lumber. Consequently most of the mature trees that the turkeys roost in are on my property. The cut areas are thick with cover that offers good bedding and nesting areas. Lots of undergrowth.
