Turkey behavior

This is my first turkey season, I don't really know much about them.

Today while scouting I finally found several sets of tracks. There would only be one or two birds at a time. What appeared to be the Tom tracks were alone, and the hen/jake tracks were either singles or pairs. They were spread out over one mile, and all traveling the same direction.

I was sort of puzzled. Do turkey (like elk) break up into smaller groups/singles when it's not mating season? How far will they travel throughout the course of their day (assuming they're not interuppted by predators)?

I did not follow them. I wanted to leave them alone because season opens in 5 days.
