Hello everyone,

Looking forward to a successful Spring turkey season, especially since it will be my first in OH as I just moved here from SC.
I was hoping somebody could help me out a bit. I had a guy tell me that Perry State Forest was eat-up with birds.
Has anyone had much success out there?
Being that I am new to OH I am still trying to locate good hunting land. I have scouted only Public which is no problem because it seems like there is plenty to go around (except where I live on the west-outter rim of Columbus). I pretty much have to drive at least 45 minutes to good land.
Anyway, if anyone has any advice on Perry State Forest, Delaware State Park or any other good places to check out for this turkey season it would be greatly appreciated!

Thanks

Did you ever find any Turkey? I’m hoping to hunt public Ohio land and don’t know where to start. I’m between tar hollow, hocking, and perry.

Good private hunting land is a rarity in Ohio. If it's worth anything, it's leased. Public land offers some opportunities for birds, but also many hunters. Perry has a good population of birds and everyone knows it! I suggest getting off of the well beaten paths and do some scouting. As the season goes on, you'll see fewer and fewer hunters.
