Joe I agree. That area get's hammered by turkey hunters. I used to hunt up there on Saturdays a lot and one thing I noticed was the majority of guys were nothing more than road hunters. They would drive around trying to strike up a gobble from their trucks.


There are actually a good number of birds by the roads there, (at least when I hunted it)....So you don't necessarily have to go deep to find them, but you need to learn to work birds that will be silent.


Roost them, get close in the morning, call and wait. It's not as exciting as bringing in a fired up bird, but those birds up there were notorious for slipping in without making a peep. 


The other option is to find the birds off the beaten path. 

“I have always tempered my killing with respect for the game pursued. I see the animal not only as a target, but as a living creature with more freedom than I will ever have. I take that life if I can, with regret as well as joy, and with the sure knowledge that nature’s way of fang and claw and starvation are a far crueler fate than I bestow.” – Fred Bear
