My buddy and I are doing are first turkey hunt this spring and I live in Keller so Decatur is the closest to me considering I can't be too far away from home with a 7 month old baby. We found a few spots to scout by Cottonwood Lake. Have you been out there recently and seen any turkey?

Me and my buddy are headed up to LBJ this weekend to try our luck. I've hunted easterns on public land down in East Texas but have never hunted Rio's on public land. Anyone familiar with the hunting pressure up there? Just want to get an idea of what I'm getting into.

Based upon the chatter on this thread I am guessing you won't be the only one up there looking for them.

Well if you are reading this and are new to public land turkey hunting and unsure of public land etiquette, let me give you some advice before heading out into the field.
1. Don't try and use turkey fans on public land unless you are absolutely certain that no other hunters are around. This could lead to someone getting shot
2. Spend more time listening than calling. I've had killed more turkeys by listening rather than hammering on a call.
3. The rule of first come, first serve will always hold true on public land. The only person who has the right to hunt that spot is the person that gets to it first
4. Don't go asking other hunters for hunting spots. The hunt is more rewarding by doing your own research.
5. Don't be the guy that shows up late and walks through other peoples' spots. If your spot is deeper in the woods, you need to leave camp earlier.
6. Don't be an angry hunter. If something goes wrong while you are hunting, don't go and ruin everyone else's hunt. My buddy went hunting on public land and some guy showed up late and got angry that my buddy was in his spot. The guy went back to his truck and started revving his engine and making as much noise as possible just so my buddy would have a bad hunt.

Thanks for the warning! It's supposed to rain this weekend so hopefully it'll reduce the amount of hunters in the field.

I planned to turkey hunt this past weekend but couldn’t find my turkey choke so I left all my gear at home this weekend. I still drove the 9 hrs to the ranch thinking I wouldn’t regret it and just turn it into a work weekend.


I think I heard tom’s gobbling every time I stepped off the back porch.
