Have lots at my place but not on public land.You should try Sierra foothills,lots of public land. The mag.'s and DFG talk about the turkeys ,pigs,and deer in SLO county,but THEY AREN'T ON PUBLIC LAND much here.Most is private.Just had some camper/hunters from LA here shooting at turkeys in a county park.Caused me lots of paperwork and now DFG is looking at all of us here,and I'm the ranger. So stay on public land,that is legal shooting area.

I know a girl, she's single, and I could probably get you her number in exchange for your turkey spot...... Laugh

Seriously though, I'm looking for some private land. This public land battle is killing me in the south part of the state...... sad

times have changed .used to be if you looked responsible and acted carefull
you could often ask and get permission to hunt on many ranches. now with a couple of generations of bad actors most ranchers will tell you to get the hell out of their yard.
i was helping my cousin in yankee canyon one spring and a fellow from georgia drove by slammed on his brakes when he saw the turkeys and came back and asked what it would cost to hunt. my cousin said no way can you hunt ther(CATTLE ) but if you get your gun i will show you where you can kill a bird.he took him up to next place got out and walked him into a flock. when they came back the guy pulled out his wallet and was trying to shell out some hundreds-cousin told him to put his DAMN money away and come in the house with us and eat some of my grandmothers home made soup and fresh baked bread.
YES TIMES HAVE CHANGED

Yeah, theres alot of Nat Forest, however, there are alot of hunters. The turkeys were originally released on private land, and even though they spread out, they are still more populous on private.....

Example: I went out this morning, and saw 15 or so.... All on private land......
