Rios and in a small section of the state you can be lucky enough to find merriams. I've got a 9 day turkey hunt/bass fishing trip on 400 private "turkey" acres starting on the opener, near Lake Shasta. :thumbsup: Will be my second turkey hunt, with the first one to the same property with success 10 minutes into the season. :biggrin: Where does everyone else like hunting them in cali?

Rio's and Merriams.
I've gone for them up around Clear lake and Berryessa but the areas were crowded and the birds figured out the game within hours. I have a new found respect for those smart birds. They all seem to hang out on private land with little to no pressure. I think I will retire and target the bass and trout this year.
