Front Range Gobblers - SW Denver'ish
« on: January 16, 2013, 09:12:00 PM »
Hey Everybody,
For the past several years, I've managed to let the Spring Turkey application dates get past me.  I plan to change that this year.  

Just curious if anybody's willing to share even just a little bit of info on hunting the Front Range.  I don't spend as much time hiking the area as I should.  Any tips or tricks are appreciated.
Regards,
homebru aka nathan in parker

I second that toward Deckers. I usually always catch a glance at 10-15 turkeys in a group out there.

Good luck, Nathan.  I plan on chasing birds more this year as well.

that simulates a jake right??? I've got one of those B-Mobile or whatever it's called, haven't had much luck with it, just use my hen decoys, picked up some of the Avian X hens last year, the one tom that came in really went nuts and acted fool with one of them, then I screwed up the gimme shot and that was my one chance.

Yes, a jake.  I'll keep your suggestions in mind.
Thanks

Gobble, gobble.  Anybody got any experience out Fort Morgan, Sterling way?  

When I've looked on the Rampart, it's too early.  Not much else for public land in Douglas County.

Nathan, in the area around Ft Morgan, the only unit with SWA's is unit 096 and its a draw unit. All the other units that are OTC are by and large private property. Most of  the really good turkey habitat is in 096 along the river. 96 has a split season, the first season generally takes 6 or 7 points and the second season only takes 2 or 3. Me and Judy drew the second season this year out there. 96 is worth building the points for. If it's a cold spring like last two years, then I think the second season is the way to go, probably don't matter if your shotgunning as they don't have to get as close. My buddies drew the first season last year, the Toms just wouldn't commit and come in, if it's the same this year then hopefully the second season will be good.

Reading the original post from last year, just want to make sure you realize you can aquire two points a year spring and fall count for both. Make yourself a calendar note in your phone so you get reminded:)
