Fall turkey hunting is an amazing activity. Knowing where to find these birds and how to hunt them will make all the difference in your success this season.
Turkeys are most commonly found in areas with a lot of open space, including fields, grasslands, and clearings within forests. They often travel between roosting sites and feeding areas throughout the day. Look for signs of turkey presence such as droppings, feathers or tracks on the ground.

The best type of gun to use when hunting fall turkeys is usually a 12-gauge shotgun with 3-inch shells filled with number four shot. A good quality camouflage pattern clothing should also be considered along with protective and comfortable boots.
