The Pine Ridge Nat. Forest near Chadron Neb. has alway had good numbers of turkeys over the years. You can get more information from the USFS headquarters in Fort Robinson Neb. about the number for this year and to get maps and DIY.
I'll second the Pine Ridge National Forest or the various WMAs around it, especially Bourdeaux Creeek. But that's a little close to Chadron. Gilber Baker is a another real good turkey spot, but it's rugged as heck. The NGPC is food plotting again which helps to keep the turkeys on the state properties.
One of the things I struggle with when afield is keeping my rifle clean and in good working order. Small amounts of dust and dirt collect moisture; moisture can freeze rendering your action immovable when you need it most. I have seen this happen on multiple occasions, and over time, I’ve learned the cause and how to prevent this from happening.
The first thing that you need to avoid before going afield is leaving excess oil on the gun. Oil will trap dirt and sand in all the wrong places....
