I've always used rage 2 blade. Same onse I use deer hunting and actually same ones I've shot deer with. Like then little dull so don't get as much penetration.

Was out for 4 hours yesterday.Only saw 2 sandhill cranes I chased out when setting my decoys.Not one sound or sight of 100's of roosting turkeys spotted last fall/winter while late season bow hunting.Not sure where they went.Must have relocated from southern Millelacs county.Will keep trying to locate.

Give up a dead quiet morning of hunting and just drive, park and listen you'll find them quickly. You can hear them miles away on ad calm morning.

All private land no public....asking random people if I can hunt on their land isn't appealing to me.I will keep trying.I have some other property to hunt more by Aitkin.

Yeah, I kept reading/hearing "you need to drive around and find them". What do you guys that do that do, just knock on farmers doors and ask if you can hunt their field the next day? Or are you driving around and scoping out public lands?

Ask
You would be surprised how much more willing people are letting you hunt turkeys over deer.

Unlike deer they aren't everywhere so you are wasting your time most time just going hunting. You need to find the little pockets of birds then start asking there or on a bordering property. Some places will have birds every year, but most they tend to move around year to year. I scout in April and ask then, usually take some quiet mornings and drive stop listen repeat. Lots of times you'll never seen them because of terrain but you can hear them.
