The Nation’s Best Areas for Turkey Hunting


If you’re a turkey hunter, it’s time to think about where you’re going to go on your spring excursions.

And as Jeff Budz and Tom “Doc” Weddle, two of the nation’s top turkey hunters, see it, you’d be smart to think about public lands. As Brian Lovett writes in a Field & Stream blog post, Budz and Weddle love wide-open spaces, offering opportunities to find spots that aren’t overcrowded with hunters.

According to these turkey experts, finding prize turkeys can sometimes be tough, especially with shrinking populations and more and more hunters.

So how do you succeed? Plan ahead, they say. Figure out the best spots to go ahead of time, and be sure you know the regulations of the area where you’re hunting.

The Field & Stream blog post names a number of states as the best in the country for turkey hunting. Included are Alabama, Mississippi, Louisiana and Idaho, four states where PotlatchDeltic sells recreational properties through its Preferred Broker Network.

So if you want to find a spot within reach of quality public hunting land in one of these four states, contact one of our Preferred Brokers today so you can have a home base for your turkey hunting and all the other activities you enjoy outdoors.
