Just over a week to go. Had a good first scout this morning.
My bet is you kill one in 10 minutes on opening day like the last 10 years.
One day hunt for sure. Good luck!
Bird in second pic is really unique! Good luck, I watched a tom breeding a hen here(KS) yesterday...seemed early but what do I know.
I predict a husband/wife double...g'luck!
Cool pictures, Good luck on your hunt!
Great pictures. The color phase bird a very neat. As an out of state guy, is CO a state that should be considered of are most of the birds on private land there? Always looking for a reason to head out west to hunt!!
Good luck Ziek! Looking forward to seeing the hero shot!
Nice. These were getting ready for the season by scouting a safer location in Thornton Colorado.
Son needs a do over from last year!!!!
I have a friend that lives in same area. You can almost walk up and pet them.
This will be my 7th year trying to kill a bird in Colorado. Hardest animal to hunt in North America
Nah turkeys aren’t that hard. You got it
There tends to be 2 different "sub-species" of wild turkeys found on the Front Range of Colo. One hangs out on private land, feeds in front and back yards, roosts in trees next to barns, etc. The other "sub-species" is found on heavily pounded public land, hardly makes a peep due to all the predators (including man), and is usually found several miles from roads and trails!
Those that have permission to hunt non-pressured private land generally have pretty quick and easy hunts! Those that are willing to put in gobs of miles and time on public land "may" be successful. Public land bird locations are usually considered secret, sacred spots!
Those white feathered birds sure are cool! The count down continues....good luck!
I agree, but once you find good public land spot those birds are not hard to kill and are also very vocal.
Definitely not that way where I hunt public!
Get away from the front range
