Was out scouting my property and trying to roost turkeys. What shall one do if all turkeys roost on your neighbors, a good 300-400 yards away from your property??????
I heard 3-4 different gobblers but all are out on neighbors ridge tops. My property line is separated by a 4 yard wide creek that I am guessing the turkeys are reluctant to cross to come and stay on my land. Plus all my fields are plowed and cultivated while the neighbors still have last years corn on them, thus pulling in all the hens to his fields. I however did see a hen and a gobbler wondering around my field edges once during midday on two separate occasions. I figured they were just lost
My question for you guys is: how do I go around this dilemma? Should I just set up on the edge of the creek and hope to call a gobbler on the other side of the creek? If I do stay on my properties ridge tops (300-400 yards away from where turkeys roost) do I have any real chances at calling in a gobbler to my decoys? Keep in mind that my entire property is separated by that 4 yard shallow creek,,in other words turkeys must cross it to get to my land
I am pronouncing my land useless for turkeys in early mornings, but hoping there might be a midday chance once gobblers start roaming around the woods looking for more hens to love.
