Here in Indiana the spring turkey season is April 22nd through May 10th. I've never hunted turkey before, but I intend to give it a try this year. What the heck, you get to wear camo and hang out in the woods! What's not to like?

Sounds like theres a few newbie turkey hunters here, good luck.  I venture to say your all going to be hooked by the end of the spring.  I plan on hunting hard this spring.  It's the first time in several years where I'll have plenty of time to hunt. Don't forget to look for morels while your out there, nothing better than deep fried turkey and morels.

Put me around a campfire cookin' something I just cleaned

I get a super sportsman every year ...and would go and sit a bit  but not too serious...until one late May....on the way to Church we turn out of the drive way and Mr. B. says look at the turkey...there..  across the street in my garden were 4 huge birds...The kids said what are they doing? It looked like they were pacing back and forth...until I saw they were throwing their heads back...[>:] and realized they were walking up and down the rows of cuke and squash plants that I'd put in and pulling them out![:@]...To add insult to injury...while at church they made dusting bowls at the end of each row theyed "cleaned". I went to the local Agway and ordered a half dozen bronze turkey pults that very week....I raised a couple of toms and the rest hens and learned how to call with my voice by mimicking them....been hunting ever since....heres a few picks of birds I've accidentally called in while practicing in the computer room....I've gotten many more pics of turkey than turkey during hunting and fenced in the garden.....

Our season in PA opens the last Saturday of April, the 25th (ending May 25), with youth day on April 18. Very much looking forward to this. I've hunted turkeys in NY a little, but now that PA has a second tag I'll stay home. Hoping to take my young cousin out on April 18.

Glad you started the thread msbadger!  Our season (NJ) Starts April 13 and goes to May 22.  However, there is a lottery for permits and you have the option to hunt one week in that time frame or on Weekends throughout the entire preiod.  Kinda stinks but considering what it used to be its better than nothing.  I enjoy hunting turkeys because its a real challange and its nice filler between deer seasons...something to look forward to.  So I've been practicing my calls, this year I decided to try a diaphragm...its touch, but I'm slowly getting them down.  Started scouting and found one spot, but I'd like to find a few more so i have plenty of options. Next will be patterning th shotgun...and I might even try hutning with the bow...should be an interesting season...I'll also be in NY doing some turkey hunting as well in the catskills..looking forward to that!  Good luck to all this year, and especially to DeerCamp, hope you nail that gobbler on your Bday!
good luck with your NY adventures.where in the cats do you go?.the ashokan reservoir is supposed to have a fair amount of birds and good rainbow trout fishing too

 
Hey Joel,
 
My buddy has some acreage on the south side Rt. 30 right across from the Pepacton Resivoir, he's had there for years.  Great deer hunting and turkey hunting..he's not far from the beaverkill which has some really good trout fishing too.  Actually got my Turkey Tag when I bought my deer tag...figured might as well since I know I'm going to be turkey hunting there in May as well.
 
Just got notification that I pulled a permit for the Jersey Lottery so I'm good there too!  I'm relatively new to turkey hunting as well so this is goign to eb an interesting season!
