I'm thinking about getting involved in the COLORADO Turkey Hunts. A Benelli SBE II is on my horizon, and I'd like to take the X to turkey hunting grounds that others can't get to if it's worth it.

Problem is...I know nothing about hunting a turkey. Damn, I love to eat them, but I'd like to harvest my own. Is anyone in CO a turkey hunter?

My old boss in Monument is a HUGE Turkey hunter. Goes twice a year. They hunt in the area of Lake Isabel and the Wet Mountains. Might be a starting point for ya.

Do a little scouting/door-knocking in Yuma County. Lots of farmers out that way that are sick to death of gobblers getting into their crops.

I see turkeys around Yuma & Wray when I go out for pheasant.

I drew a tag for turkey last year, had every intention of trying to shoot one, and accidentally filled the tag when a young male flew into my bumper about 5 minutes from the house.

He went in the fridge and I got a new grille. Tag filled!

Winning!!!

I have wanted to get into "bird hunting" in general (correct me if I'm wrong). I may have to pick your brain sometime and figure out where I should start.

I'm starting from scratch too. I went down to Walmart and picked up one of the DOW Turkey brochures which outlines the rules and regulations. I haven't read all of it yet, but it's got good info. I also started perusing the DOW web site, and they have a "Turkey School" for beginners.

It looks like the first step is passing the hunter's safety class. Then you can begin applying for a licence.Chris, I'm thinking we can take your "wheel and weild" to the next level :)

I'm in as well, my next door neighbor is big into bird hunting, so he could be a great resource for us. Our family has some property in Southern Colorado that we recently purchased and there's lots of wild Turkeys down there..
Bill, this would be just awesome!!!!

You cant go wrong with a Benelli, I love my Nova. Haven't had a chance to do any hunting since we moved out here, but I would love to hunt some turkey as well!
