Fall Update--- 0 for 11 Days in NY-- But 1 Day Success In NJ.

New York was a Bust this Fall. I had fun hiking with a gun for 11 days out of our short 14 day Fall Season. I called up 4 young Gobblers on my 1st day in New Jersey though! The one, I shot weighed out at 18.4lbs at the Check Station. Just a young heavy guy. He had 1/2" spurs and a 5" beard.

How Many Members Here Has Taken A Nice Jake Or Jenny On The Wing?

This usually happens for me when, I am Pheasant Hunting and the Fall Turkey Season is open. If you are a good Wingshot with the Pheasants-- a Plump Jake or Jenny usually comes down easy.

My Brother in Law has a Flock that visits his Lawn Regularly. Last weekend, I saw a good 20 Wild Turkeys on State Land. I live in Orange County and just 5...

Re: if money was no object.

I would buy at least 400 acres and post it very good! Always been my dream since, I took up Turkey Hunting in 1990 to own my Hunting Land. Open Hardwoods with a creek running through next to a huge field. That is what, I would want!!

Re: Calling In Spring Gobblers Before Opening Date On Land With No Hunting.

Plenty of deer here--- but so many that most seem on the small side. Plenty of wild Turkey as well.Highland Lakes State Park is another that h...

Re: FALL TURKEY HUNTING...

I think this coming Fall,I will get out much earlier in New Jersey when their Season opens in NOV. Last few years, I am seeing more and more Hikers getting out extra early. Even around Sunrise.. Public Lands are getting Tougher-LOL!

I have seen 2 broods so far in New York. June for the most part has been dry. I think there will be plenty of Jakes and Jennies around for me to go after in Late Oct in New York and NOV in New Jersey.

Re: FALL TURKEY HUNTING...

Sure they Gobble! Rare for mature Gobblers- but, when, I cut-- the Jakes often open up with those 1/2 gobbles. Then, I can scatter that flock to the 4-winds- have some time to make a quick blind and call them back.

I used to be in a number of hunting clubs. One had roughly 700+ acres. The hunting was a little tougher then on public lands .

Re: Hard season

My Toughest season also in New York and New Jersey. Not much Gobbling on most days-- sometimes just 1 Gobble from 1 bird. Public land is tough for sure. I did manage to take 1 NY Gobbler.
