Whats everyones favorite terrain to hunt turkeys? Mine would have to be swamps with sloughs and creeks. With big hardwood timber with a few ridges.

I guess this , for me is a trick question. :huh: You ask what my favorite is, I used to hunt in a low, swampy county, it had a ton of turkeys and even though it was hard hunting, I had a lot of success. On the other had, another area I used to hunt was a mix of hardwoods and pines, could see the turkeys coming for a long ways, it was cool. I guess my correct answer is" My faviorite is hunting in the turkey woods" :huh:

I`ve hunted turkeys in all of the above, but the swamps are my favorite. Yes it is hard but the beauty the swamps offer is next to none. I could set there all day and be happy. Next I would say hill country. That will test a man walking up and down the steep terrain. And if your in the right spot you can hear a gobbler a long ways off.

this is pretty tough. i have always hunted hardwood/pine but the one time i got to go out to Texas and hunt the mesquite flats it was pretty amazing. i looked around everywhere and thought to myself there aint no turkeys livin around here. as time passed by my assumption was proved to be wrong. i think i have to agree with cut on this one, i'll pick F all of the above, plus anywhere else a turkey may roam.
