Like I said I wont tell you to hunt on the x but Ill tell you a couple of areas to look. If you dont want to do any legwork to find your own x. Fine dont. There will always be a component within our ranks who are lazy slobs. Its just a fact. If someone walks up to me and asks where to hunt. They are probably only going to get a general area, followed by the advice to scout first. Why lie about it. You never know who your talking to. One of the best places I have ever turkey hunted came about by putting a couple of guys on some elk. Turns out they owned a ranch in SE MT that I now get to turkey hunt on. It doesnt happen very often but it does happen.
That's the truth, I have helped a few guys out as well. I shoot my limit of ducks and as I am leaving they might be pulling up for the day. I tell them where it's hot and wish them luck. I know they will be back tomorrow to try to hunt it but might as well join forces and make some friends in the process. In one case it was some guys that have oodles of private land but just wanted to do some public hunting to take pressure off their spot for the weekend. Next weekend I am busting ducks and geese like crazy with the guys at their place and eatting bacon, eggs, and hashbrown and wondering how I ever managed before. :mrgreen:
Now I don't do that very often - I won't give you the treasure map, as it were, but it's just as easy to say "try busting some ducks on the Missouri around Great Falls or Fort Benton this weekend, that's where they were hot the other day" they can do the scouting from there.
