Anyone go turkey hunting in Nc sat?

I went turkey hunting saturday, and managed to have a tom come in to about 50-60 yards, but only clucked. He wouldn't come in any closer, i think i blew it by calling to aggresively Cry . Did anyone else go, and did you have any luck?
Thanks, mike

Saturday tukey hunt

I was actually on one of our SC properties last Saturday (4/9). It was so windy, I don't think anything even heard me! When the wind wasn't howling, the skeeters ate me alive!

This week end should be much better!

You'll never get one if you sleep in!

Turkey hunting

Shooting time is 30 minutes before sunrise. I like listen from high ground near a roosting area at least 30 minutes before that. That way I can hear them on the roost and have some cover of darkness to set up.

You can't beat being in the woods at that time of day. Everything comes alive and when a turkey gobbles close to you, there is nothing better!

Good luck!

where do I hunt?

I have a couple of properties in person county near durham county I can hunt. Person is one of the best counties for turkey in N.c. You need to find someone who'll let you hunt in person, caswell, rockingham, or orange county. There is a game land in person called hyco game land that is good for public land. I haven't been there, but have heard alot about it. You don't have to have a special permit on this gameland. Good luck!!!

I'll check out hyco. You're right, there'snothinglike being in the woods at sunrise. First you hear the birds, then the small ground critters. It's great. I love being about 30 fet up my climber, watching the woods come alive, almost like you are getting to watch a movie that was made just for you.
