turkey roosting habits?

Have you found that turkeys roost in the same tree time after time? I always thought that they would just roost wherever they found themselves at dark but this flock seems to be going back to the same place every night. Is that common or something unusual?

Turkey Roosts

They definitly tend to roost in the same general area, but will move if pressured or food sources change etc... You can identify the main roost's by looking for droppings on the ground under the trees. I'm sure it can vary depending on where you hunt but this is what i have found in Missouri, South Dakota & Minnesota.

same tree over and over and over. At least the turkeys in my yard do.

I got a tom that has moved in. He is almost use to us.
