In eastern co. the turkeys are limited to basically the river bottoms and there isn't alot of area so if they were otc there would be an army out there. There are lots of areas in the mountains that are otc but the turkeys are hard to find and have much more habitat. We can have one otc license and 2 if you draw a second one.
