Cool, I guess. I don't even know where that is offhand. Confused
Just a point for me, gonna head out west or try to sneak behind a "wellness center"compound, ie cult. Dunno yet, need to do some more scouting.

Better stay up wind then! They might be 'medicating' in their 'wellness center'!! Whistling

James M. John SWA is southeast of Trinidad. You actually have to access it from Raton, NM and through the Lake Dorathy SWA. NO ROADS! It is apparently a ~4mi hike to get to the property and at least a couple more to where the birds are! ...I suppose I do need the excersise!!! Yes

Holy crap. That's nuts. At least it ain't something the size of an elk to drag out.
I found the access point where the Forest Service touches the wellness center and one of their church members had mentioned to one of my buddies about all the turkeys they had, but I've cruised by a few times and found nothing in their little hippy gardens. I haven't hiked it yet, but I guess it's almost time for that.

Shotgun. I'm not very serious about turkeys. Just something to do before I can start getting up into the big stuff, chasing hairy creatures with bones protruding through their skulls.

That's a long walk to hunt a turkey. My friends think I'm crazy if I walk a mile to hunt a bird. But sometimes that's what it takes to hunt unmolested birds. You get the birds to yourself and you get to spend more time in the beautiful outdoors. Good luck to you and remember to post pics/story of that big gobbler you kill Yes .
