We almost got a turkey re-introduction but the "huggers" put an end to it. They felt that it was not in the best interest of the turkeys to be intro. just to be a game animal.

That is just plain idiocy on thier half id say they missed the big picture for sure id be fighting that one to the end why do they always gotta FU*& up stuff they shouldnt even be a part of? pardon the french.
The non-hunting community up here is still more organized and vocal than the hunting community. I've tried to organize letter writing campaigns, local protests, etc. but the hunters seem to be quite content to have these things lost. Every year it is costing a bit more to hunt and you need a few more cards to do it but nobody seems to mind. It is just a way to make the process more difficult for new hunters to start up the sport.
One of the most important components of deciphering a new hunting area is distinguishing between the summer and winter ranges for the game that you plan to pursue.

Knowing these areas will allow you to take the current weather (as well as the past couple weeks) and apply that to the landscape and make an educated guess as to where you might find that big buck or bull.
