I believe that my hunt'n ground needs some improve'n. We used to have lots of turkeys roost'n on our property but that hasnt been the case the last few years. I believe that the underbrush is too thick and I have already started cutt'n brush. Any tips on the best way to clear some of the brush. Burning is not an option. Also, any advice on food that can grow in semi-shady areas. Thanks.

Good food plots for Turkeys include crab apple trees. Also some corn plots that you could leave standing would be good as well.

a brush hog seems to work about the best for getting rid of thick weeds and brush (as long as you can get one wherever your wanting to use it at)... crops that are similar to whats usually around seem to work fine for keeping turkeys around.

wheat or oat fields are excellent spring forage for birds, and seeded out in the fall is great for them too. open fields attract strutting toms.
as for underbrush, if you can lease out for cattle grazing, it makes nice dent.
